  • A young, wild-tempered farm girl from the Moonshaes, Emurra Scaradath comes to Waterdeep with her family to trade away two ships full of furs. She is the possessor of the fourth ring of the Moonweb, Enthandas.

    While the Scaradath family takes a coach outside the walls, Emurra is captured by drow. Engalathae has a dream of the ring on Emurra's finger. Engalathae uses spells to find Emurra and goes down into the Underdark after her. Engalathae then uses a Word of Recall spell to send Emurra and her mother back to the temple of Selune in Waterdeep. There, Emurra practically drags the priests there into an expedition down into the Deep Realms, promising the ring as payment. Led by six senior priestesses of the Moon, the expedition frees Engalathae and Emurra's father and brothers.

    The four rings are soon united, creating the first Moonweb, a spectacular pattern of interwoven shafts of gleaming moonlight that touches every Selunite present at the occasion, healing all of their hurts and hatreds, and confirming Emurra as a priestess of the goddess. Selune also grants those clergy present with the ability to trace each other, whatever the distance for the rest of their lives. They are known as "the Touched", and become the heart of the Selunite faith. As the years pass, Emurra and Engalathae rises to lead to them. »
