Father Simon. Abbey Library (Human Ghost Monk Pathfinder CR 16)

Father Simon was the Abbot, the head monk at the Abbey of the True and the Wise. His appearance is of a slightly overweight man, shaved head and pale blue eyes.

The monks of this order spent their life searching for books , reading books and copying books. The library contains a copy of almost every book ever written.

As knowledge is power the abbey came to the notice of the lich Crattak who attacked the Abbey with an army, a mixture of undead and evil mercenaries. After a bitter fight the army fort its way into the abbey, through the crypt to the library.  There Father Simon, the last defender, stood his ground, fighting bravely until the sting of the Bone Devi “Dread Bones” took him in the back. With his last breath He proclaimed the curse to protect the library from evil hands.  The curse sealed off the library and imprisoned everyone  in the Abbey. Once in the Abbey grounds no one could leave.

Destroying Dread Bones brings the curse to an end. This means thousands of tons of rock are now about to fall on the abbey forever crushing it and destroying everything within.

Father Simon will be seated at a desk reading a book. He will not attack the party but will defend himself if attacked. If spoken to he will look up with a bit of  a start, he has not had any visitors for over two hundred years.  He will then sense the lifting of the curse, and demand to now what has happened.

As a reward for stopping the library fall into evil hands, Brother Simon is willing to find one book for each party member and let them keep it, time is at a precedence though, as he has only enough strength to keep the shield in place for as long as it takes to quickly collect the books and then let the party to escape. The party will hear the shield creaking and groaning as they run through the Abbey to safety.
