  • Mirtul 5 Warriors and mages of the Cult of the Dragon with the dracoliches Goarulskul the Black and Arlauthra Manytalons, attack the Holyheart Fastness in search of the Crysturm of Tranquility. A young treetender, Lorth Blaenarry, flees with the sacred sphere north and west.

    He reaches Turmish, where lurking Red Wizards of Thay recognize the sphere and try to grab him. They hunt him through the streets of Alaghon and Telpir and almost slay him in the woods near Starmantle Bay, but is able to escape with the help of a Harper sorcerer (who changes Lorth's appearance to look older and uglier). Lorth boards a ship bound for Zhentil Keep.

    In Zhentil Keep, Lorth is fortunate to be found by other Harper agents, who take him to the Border Kingdom. The Cult of the Dragon again catches up with him, but escapes when Zhentarim agents also attack. The Harper agents, in desperation, teleports Lorth alone into the heart of the Anauroch desert, to the holy site of Eldath, the House of the Moon.

    There the Green Goddess herself, Eldath, appears to Lorth, and whisks him to Neverwinter (but not before adding a new power to the sphere, and promising to add a new power whenever the sphere is brought back to the House of the Moon in need). Lorth devotes his life to serving Eldath and to bring the wilderness back to those places that has suffered under too many axes, ploughs and fires. »

  • Lorth Blaenarry, priest of Eldath and keeper of the Crystrum of Tranquility dies of old age. A tree springs up where his body was found. Eldathyns kneel around the him in prayer, and the Crystrum rolls straight to a young half elf worshipper, Ilphiira Alonthar.

    Ilphiira takes the sphere out into the wilderness, not far from the Fastness of Green Shadows (the Eldathyn temple that Lorth had founded) to pray and ask for direction. Just then, the Brotherhood of the Arcane raids the temple and destroys it, seeking the Crystrum. Ilphiira flees toward Silverymoon, but never arrives there.

    Eldath sends a vision to Meirthond Arbreer, Keeper of the Fallen Trees Fastness in the uplands of Amn. In the vision Meirthond is told that Ilphiira lives, but has set the Crystrum down "where only the daring will find it". Meirthond is told to spread the word to all Eldathyns, "seek it, and great reward will be given to any who brings the Crystrum of Tranquility in kind spirit to the House of the Moon. »
