A terrible run lf bad luck came to Caein and the Cherry Valley Loft that pursued them all the way to the present. After going to what the once called Bad Man City, Caein had a fruitless meeting with Mister Tysco Zautt, simply due Caein's ability to articulate properly from his life threatening ordeal. They had to postpone their meeting, which spurned on the terrible events.
The recently installed pipes were breaking from the freakish cold weather that was not common in the Southern Archipelago! This in turn caused water damage to many of the rooms in not just the hotel part of the Cherry Valley Loft, but also in the recently rebuilt Casino! Many electrical appliances short circuited and lost function. Even the back-up generators were damaged by this one weather system!
Caein had forked over so much cash to fix everything that he had to dock most of his workers' paychecks for the next 6 months. He had vouched thay every cent would be paid for their hardwork, and thankfully, this did happen! Many of the artifacts in his bedroom vault that were safe and valued were sold off to make the payments happen.
However, Caein was put in such a deep rut that the Bank was beginning to send him red letters that if he didn't reintroduce money back into his business account, he'd have to pay even more cash after being taken to court for what he owed and would also have his account closed! All of this happening forced Caein to search around for quick, safe cash.... Then word came to about some tomb in Diablo Desert that was rumored to have riches, both in knowledge and actual wealth. The catch, though, was that it was also rumored to be infested with the dead reanimated..!
Caien was iffy on this, even as he sent out an advertisement for anyone willing to work for a handsome reward to be discussed at said tomb. The coordinates were given in the advertised page across the web and the city before Caein rushed to the tomb itself. There was no real name for this place as far as he knew, but the locals called it, 'The Deadman's Hearth.'
Caein arrived at the area: an actual tropical jungle away from the blistering desert surrounding a limestone temple with images of animals in head dresses looking down on the entrance lf the temple. Under each, Caein could see hieroglyphs under the statues, as well as an on the archway of the front entrance. Caein couldnçt read it from where he stood, about fifty yards from the closts 2 statues. He didnçt want to wait too long out here, but he knew going in alone was bound to put him in a perilous situation! The more he had with him, the easier they'd get this job done.
"Hopefully, someone actually answers and isnct gonna be destructive... Like that monstrously strong, overgrown beetle of a person! Ech, I hope that one particularly doesn't show!"
