  • Kythorn 6 The Exiles' War (Weeping War: Campaign #4)
    A.K.A.: The Bone and Briar Battles
    Farther east of the mythal lay the towers and tree-homes of a number of exiled elf wizards and necromancers not welcome in Myth Drannor. Still, with the Army of Darkness forced through their lands and plundering as they went, these disparate exiles still banded together (with themselves and various N'Vaelahr agents) for the war effort. Notes about this battle include the necromancers' animation of those they slew among the Army, not to mention at least one enslaved green dracolich. The Exiles achieved victory by their swift strike of fireballs that destroyed the charge of a lending orgish party, which they then animated against their comrades. Most Exiles were merely concerned with defending their own lands and towers, caring little about the elves who denied them welcome in Myth Drannor. However, the humility of some elves (especially Spell-Major Josidiah Starym) and the obvious challenge drew a few out of exile and into the Akh'Faer.

    This event lasts until Kythorn 10, 712 DR »

    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. »
