A very enjoyable set-up with additional intrigue to really help give it more weight than a mere tomb plundering. I appreciate the cultural flair and could see this doing well as an introductory adventure in the Hill Cantons or other areas of a similar cultural root inspiration. I would recommend this to those who want a good first level dungeon with greater ramifications to it.
