Mère-Lachaiselongue Cemetery is large cemetery in Toussaint located between Beauclair Port and Francollarts. While the cemetery itself is rather large, with tombstones practically overlapping each other, there's only one crypt here.
Map Description[edit | edit source]
- At Belgaard Vineyard, a famous act of poisoning once occurred which took the lives of a large gang of bandits who were ransacking the area. The folk charged with cleaning up in the aftermath originally planned to burn the bodies, but one pious soul thought even rotten dung-diddlers such as they deserve better. He thus paid for their bodies to be laid to rest in a small cemetery: Mère-Lachaiselongue. Later, Sir Ramon of Gichon died a martyr's death here while trying to get rid of the bandits' constantly returning wraiths.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This landmark references the very popular Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris in which are buried some of the greatest artists like Chopin, Molière, Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde to name few. It is also a pun - "chaise" is French for chair or seat and is a not unfamiliar placename and surname in France, while a "chaise longue" or long chair is a kind of sofa. The pun is extended by replacing Père (Father) with Mère (Mother).
- One of the tombstones belongs to Jymm Morrisonn, a reference to the famous singer and songwriter Jim Morrison. The inscription on the stone reads "Conjuror. Half man, half lizard", referring to the fact that one of Morrison's nicknames was "The Lizard King".
- One of the tombstones belongs to Antoine de Faint-Exuperly, a reference to the famous French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The inscription reads The Big Prince 1200-1244, which refers to his famous children's book The Little Prince and the date to his actual death at 44 years old.
