Our heroes set their plan to infiltrate the citadel of Northwall, but guards have been posted to deter interlopers. Thora and Redthorn must think quickly to gain entry before time runs out.
The heroes traverse the dark, undead-infested halls beneath the ancient fortress of Northwall and eventually end up on the surface, where a chance encounter gives them the opening they desperately need.
Our heroes trek deeper into the cave, following the haunted voice of Ajax the Satyr, who tells them about the Mad King’s dark deeds some 120 years past. But someone, or something, wants to prevent them from going any further.
The heroes hide along the rugged mountain path, awaiting the arrival of a small squad of enemy knights who are unwittingly strolling into their carefully planned ambush. The ensuing battle quickly turns in favor of our adventurers, and ends with many questions.
Our heroes pierced the veil between worlds and began their journey up the lost mountain. But it isn’t long before their presence disturbs the fierce denizens of this strange land.
The adventurers accompany Redthorn on a desperate mission to rescue his beloved squire before the onset of war. They travel back to Northwall and reconnect with old acquaintances along the way.
The adventurers make haste for Oldhome and meet up with a harbinger of one hero’s past. With the alliance in mind, they march on, only to discover that much has changed in the days since their departure. With the stakes already so high, a friend’s inconvenient loyalties become a cause for concern.
The fate of the alliance depends upon the honesty and silver tongue of the party’s most unlikely hero, but Heartwood Hollow’s powerful magics reveal much more than anyone expected, including the identities of those responsible for Lady Graylash’s mysterious murder.
The heroes continue their investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding Lady Graylash’s death, and the Elves make an unusual offer to quickly resolve the stalled negotiations.
The heroes settle into their new quarters and discover that an old acquaintance is embroiled in the mysterious death of Lady Graylash. Their investigation is briefly stymied by an overprotective servant, but quick-thinking gains them an audience with the grief-stricken Lord Graylash.
