Cormyr  the tearing of the weave

Chapter 1: Temple of Mystra
The fellowship tricked their way into the temple of Mystra to discover what is amiss. They find out that the clerics offer “Mystra’s sacred trust” to travelers and other folk who aren’t likely to be missed. These folk are dominated after a long ritual; those with no magical talent are torutred to death or fed to monsters. The others are taken from the city to a location in the Vast Swamp.

Chater 2: Into the Vast Swamp
The PCs follow the trial on the map and encounter at the edge of the swamp some local lizardfolk – and a castle in the swamp where the dominated victems enter, but never leave.

Four times fifty living men,
(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one.

Slavepits

Guided by mysterious visions, Thorgrimm leads his merry bands of adventurers West, to Dagger Falls, capital of Daggerdale and home to Randal Morn, Lord of Daggerdale. The adventurers arrive at a fortuitous time: Dagger Falls has narrowly escaped great calamity at the claws of a Red Wyrm, in league with the Zentharim. In full reconstruction, and absent able-bodied adventurers, our brave troop is set upon a quest to liberate a score of Greycloak POWs from the clutches of the Zentharim and their foul Orc mercenaries.

As their ranger friend is sent for re├»nforcements, they infiltrate a ruinous and decrepit temple at the heart of the Zentharim encampment. There, they battle foulest undead, ruthless mercenaries and a pair of winged insect-daemons. Among their victories also a priestess of Unholy Bane, and a sorceress bent on procuring slaves for purposes unknown. Moreover, their discover a bundle of notes and maps, detailing the Zentharim slavers’ operations in and around the Dales.

As the heroes burst from the temple – with the POWs in tow – their are greeted by a mounted host of Greycloaks. Together, they make short work of the unprepared mercenary forces. Upon returning to Daggerdale, the Lord Morn proclaims them Friends of Daggerdale, and swears an oath to return the favor, if and when the heroes should find themselves in need of an armed company.

Idalla’s Gift

In a library they discover a beautiful woman in a worn dress. She tells them that she has been trapped here by an evil mage and that she requires their permission to leave (true story). Thorgrim gives his permission, and with that the succubus was released. Before she teleported away, she gave Thorgrim a ring (Profane Gift +2 to an ability of choice) and a suggestion to never remove the ring. As long Thorgrim wears the ring, Idalla will be able to communicate with him across any distance (and may use her suggestion spell-like ability through it). The ring can only be removed with a dispel evil spell.
