1371 DR

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.
