  • The orc warlord Fottergrim and the magelord Archlis leads a mixed horde of goblins, hobgoblins, bugbears and some half-breed rogues against Tsurlagol. When they successfully enter the city, numerous local humanoinds join Fottergrim's army.

    Fortunately, the Thultyrl of Procampur honors his treaty with Tsurlagol and moves his armies to free it's sister city. The Thultyrl hires an adventuring band called the Siegebreakers (a band of sappers). In their expedition the Siegebreakers discover the Moaning Diamond beneath Tsurlagol. The Siegebreakers divert a river beneath Tsurlagol, and combined with Archlis using the Moaning Diamond, the southwestern and western walls of the city are collapsed. Fottergrim and Archlis are slain and Procampur's armies victorious.

    Fottergrim's silver-plated skull is mounted on a pillar halfway between the two cities as a warning against threatening Procampur's allies. »

  • Winter Solstice Galaeron Nihmedu leads his patrol into an ancient crypt housing seven Aryvandaaran nobles. The patrol tracked down a band of humans and followed them through a dwarven tunnel to where they were using a beholder to carve a path to the Sharn Wall. The humans were trying to locate Melegaunt Tanthul, one of the 12 Princes from the ancient Netherese city of Shade. The elves had a small skirmish with the crypt-breakers, and then Melegaunt himself appeared. Galaeron’s and Melegaunt’s magical bolts collided, creating an explosion that punctured a hole in the Sharn Wall (due to the collision of weave and shadow weave magic), and thus freeing the phaerimm. The phaerimm begin a siege of the elven city of Evereska.

    The leader of the human band, Vala Thorsdotter, was loyal to Melegaunt through a debt made by her great grandfather, Bodvar. As more phaerimm escaped through the breach, they began gathering armies of bugbears, illithids, and beholders. Melegaunt, Vala, and Galaeron goes on a journey to stop the phaerimm, Melegaunt leading the way but not telling them where they were going. On their journey, they are eventually accompanied by a little man named Malik el Sami yn Nasser (actually the Seraph of Lies, the highest honor bestowed by Cyric) and Aris, a stone giant priest whom Galaeron rescued from beholders serving the phaerimm. Along the way, Melegaunt took advantage of Galaeron’s sorcery skills to teach him how to use the Shadow Weave. »
