Yllas the Huntress was ever within the orbit of Duke van Pelt – many (including Yllas) believed that one day they would be wed and she would lead the Brown Rangers from the van Pelt estates. But of course there are no van Pelt estates today as Duke van Pelt’s demonology summoned forth a great evil that the rangers were forced to slay – losing most of their numbers (including Yllas) in the process.
Yllas’ brother had these crypts built / repurposed under the burned out shell of the van Pelt estate and then everyone from the region left because Duke van Pelt’s summoned monstrosity might be slain, but in the process it poisoned the land for miles around and everything grew twisted and wrong. Over the years this effect has lessened and a few hundred years later people are finally moving back into the area – but most give a good clearance around the burned out shell of the old manor.
The crypts aren’t all that well hidden though, and many of the rangers’ tombs have been disturbed or robbed since. The great stone seal to Yllas’ tomb remains unbroken and unopened… perhaps there are still great treasures of the van Pelts or the Brown Rangers within… or perhaps the foul thing summoned by Duke van Pelt somehow infected Yllas and she waits silently to be released.
