Fall of Zhentil Keep
Fzoul Chembryl reads aloud from the True Life of Cyric, revealing the dark god’s betrayal of his faithful at Zhentil Keep. Xeno Mirrormane, High Priest of Cyric, is struck by powerful divine fire from Mask. The flames devour Xeno, then proceeded to do likewise to the temple of Cyric. Fzoul flees the falling city to Teshwave as Cyric-summoned giants, dragons, and other monsters sack much of Zhentil Keep.

Lord Orgauth had only the small number of troops that hadn’t fled the destruction and a few meagre reinforcements from Darkhold. Orgauth died during the siege but a pit fiend named Abarax that had been imprisoned by one of Orgauth’s mages escaped from it’s bonds and found Orgauth’s corpse. The baatezu polymorphed into the fallen leader and effectively took up his life where Orgauth had left it.

Abarax (as Orgauth) and his troops survived. He then summons the Erinyes Eshaeris to take the place of a courtesan named Desmonda who had disappeared during the siege. Together, they befuddled the remaining lords and took complete, unopposed control of the Keep.
