Grave Affairs

Constructor's Note
*I thought this was his surname... but on double-checking myself, apparently 1D
1DSurname* of a certain Impaler[-----]
literally just means "Impaler" in Romanian. But since there's two whole Wikipedia lists of people with it as a surname, it evidently has become one since the 1400s. I think that counts. The more you know.
Checking for previous play data...

    I like this centerless style of grid.

        I knew it from Castlevania so it has to be legit. Fun!

          Never played the games... but I'm obsessed with the Netflix series. You have solid tastes.

            I only know it from the anime too. I wish it didn’t end.

            That little town of Yterrby has gobs of elements named after it: erbium, yttrium, ytterbium, terbium. A bunch more were discovered in the same region. Fun story... in the publication of the breakthrough discovery of the high-temperature superconductor YBCO, the researches deliberately mis-reported the formula as containing ytterbium throughout the peer-review process. At the last minute before publication, they emended their paper to the true formula, containing yttrium. Their work won the 1987 Nobel prize in physics.
