Strange things are happening in the Sword Coast. The iron has gone bad, every weapon forged with it is completely worthless. Bandits plague the Coast stealing everything else that already isn't ruined. And people are muttering that it is all the work of an outside interest bent on domination. Some say that it is the Zhentarim, some say that it is the Amnish, although they have troubles of their own.

forever, had not fate played its hand. Because of the growing threat of evil in the world, Gorion feels compelled to remove you from Candlekeep, and take you to another hiding place where he will "explain everything".
And so it began...
