It has been many months since the lost mines of phandelvar , but the nightmare persisted , Woodchuck, Ulfar and renmear look into that huge eye, then suddenly a choking feeling , the all the life being sucked from them , darkness , and then , a huge intake of breath , small read eyes, a handsome face frames with the silver white hair " Krenshinibon " it croaks in a dry voice , as ancient as the start of the world. The 30 grae hags standing around , flinch at the name .
Then you wake in a cold sweat, it started every night , then every week and now only a few times every few month.As if the creature is moving further away .
The town of Phandalin has seen little change , Halia Thornton has returned with the death of the duergar smith , Ulfar now spends most of his time in deep conversations with Daran Edermath and the tattooed elven necromancer Hamun kost . the Graea coven shook ulfar to his core , and his church seeks answers .
Travelling to ancient library at Candle Keep on the sword coast , Ulfar and Hamun Kost have worked out the ancient symbols on the ancient door are very old Giant Runes . When ulfar mentioned Krenshinabon to Kost , deep within the cellars of candle keep , brother Dirthol a blind aged monk shows them a most vile text written in the demon script , it explains the following .
Crenshinibon was a vile relic of immense power, a crystal shard that drew its magical energy from the light of the sun. Crenshinibon was a sentient artifact, and it possessed a never-ending hunger for power and glory at whatever cost; therefore, Crenshinibon was not a reasonable being. It always desired a powerful wielder, usually a corruptible magic-user of some sort, and greatly enhanced that wielder's powers. The Crystal Shard also insidiously manipulated its wielder and would readily abandon him or her for someone more capable of furthering its goals of ultimate conquest. The relic could lure in thousands of evil-intentioned beings with its magical call, creating a the mightiest of evil armies. It has been lost for thousands of years , but rumours have passed over many centuries , that a fragment of key to crenshinbons hiding place was held by 5 giant lords deep within each ones lair .
Meanwhile Elrath has been working closely with the harpers and Zhentarim as a duel spy, his inn is well known to be a source of information throughout the realm , and many come seeking it. He has become very close to sister Garelle, but she has now been missing for over a month and you have tried all your informants but have came up blank, your last chance is Halia thornton , she said she would help , the cost…. will be repaid at a later date , she tells you the Garelle was last seen in the ice wind dales at a town called Bryn shander , she is looking for a giant relic called the Volindod , but did not leave any word with you….. strange you think?
Rolling out 2 huge maps , Hamun Kost looks down at the 2 huge maps , and lights the candle , Elrath and Ulfar sit in shadow . I have had word from the Red Wizards of thay , says Hamun . The news is not good , it seems your red eyed man has been seen in the Reghed Glacier to the north , so the journey to Bryn shander with our esteemed warlock friend , could be a starting point ?
Elrath speaks of Garelle and it seems the untamed north of the ice wind dale could further all of your causes .
Yes agrees ulfar ?
