From the campaign:
Congratulations, you're dead and the afterlife isn't what you thought. Don't worry about it, my new friends, we've all had to rub the dirt out of our eyes and come to terms with our, as the scientists say, metamorphosis. You're a spook now, a soul living the unlife in the great city of Necropolis. What you do from here is up to you, everyone is looking for that perfect piece of the afterlife and some will do anything to get their hands on it. It's not just the city here in the land of the dead, there's the Salts, the River of Styx and the Sea of Lost Memories, the Hellfire Lands and let us not forget the Dream Veil. Be careful where you stick your nose, not everyone who goes searching comes back. The well-wishers believe those sorry spooks found what they were looking for, but let's be realistic, we may be dead but there are a lot of dangers out there and we're not the only ones here. Listen to me talk, you're fresh from the quietus and you probably need a good poison to better take this all in. Follow me, I know a guy who has a couple extra bone cards lying around - trust me you're going to need them.
