  • Eleasis 28 Having searched for months looking for the Viper's Nest in the Brynwood at the request of Randolph dul Umast, high priest of Tymora in the hamlet of Sevenecho, Dura Gerathu locates the tracks of Calispar Delgorth and Autton Shadowshroud. He follows then to the Viper's Nest hidden in a dead-magic zone. »

  • Eleasis 30 Having observed the Viper's Nest for the past 2 days, the ranger Dura Gerathu travels to the Misty Vale and informs his druid friend, the Green Lady, a druid of Eldath what he had observed.

    He then travels to his cabin in Brynwood and composes a letter for his falcon Gale to deliver to the high priest of Tymora, Randolph dul Umast in Sevenecho. However, Cedric Ravajar, now leader of the Vipers, sends Calispar and his bandits to eliminate Dura.

    Dura is killed and the letter leads the Vipers to the Green Lady. They begin to look for her, when sprites in the service of the Green Lady informs her of the intruders. The Vipers are beaten back, but vow to return at a later time.

    The Green Lady sends a pair of sprites to determine the fate of Dura. When they return with word of his death, the Green Lady falls into deep mourning, and waits for the Vipers to return to finish her. »
