100 Years Ago
Our story begins 100 years ago. In Rawlinswood, the great wizard
Khelben "Blackstaff " Arunsun came across two powerful beings locked
in combat. The two combatants were Ygorl, the Slaad Lord, and a
Githyanki General named Cireka. Both plotted the invasion of Faerun
and fought each other for that right. They battled through different
planes of reality and would
stop at nothing until the
world was his or hers. As
Khelben watched them
fight, he knew that
whoever prevailed would
destroy all of Faerun. To
prevent either of them
from getting that chance,
Khelben trapped them in a
Demon Stone where they
would fight forever.
PLAYER CHARACTERS
Rannek, the Fighter
Race:
Human
Alignment:
Lawful Good
Age:
32
Gender:
Male
Height:
6'5"
Weight:
240 lbs
Unlike most travelers, Rannek journeyed to the Bloodstone land of
Damara in search of anonymity. He hadn’t come to fight in Vaasa, but
rather to escape a tortured past.
Several months after settling down, Rannek made a costly error. In
his home village of Nesme, he failed to recognize an impending troll
attack. He misjudged the enemy, whom he thought were simply
scavenging for trace metals at the base of the Galena Mountains. The
advancing group turned out to be a troll invasion force accompanied by
a unit of battle-thirsty orcs. Nesme’s unsuspecting citizens, hearing no
alarm call, were left defenseless as the onslaught ensued. Although a
dwarven countercharge eventually returned Nesme back to its folk,
Rannek left the region in
disgrace. After some time,
the beleaguered fighter
headed east toward
Damara, pulled in that
direction by a force he
could not explain. With
little to lose, he followed.
Rannek specializes in the
use of melee weapons, the
sword and the fist.
The Present
Just outside the Gemspark Mine in Damara, a lone warrior named
Rannek stumbles across a raging battlefield. Unable to stand by idly
and watch innocents perish, Rannek rushes to the aid of the villagers.
In the process, he meets the mysterious Zhai and saves her life. Stuck
in the middle of the battlefield, they are aided by a young sorcerer
named Illius.
The three are then forced into the entrance of Gemspark Mine by
the battle outside. In the mine, they unwittingly free Cireka and Ygorl
from the Demon Stone. Released from their captivity, the two renew
their battle for the rights to take Faerun. They must be stopped if
Faerun is to survive.

OFFICIAL GAME GUIDE

Illius, the Sorcerer
Zhai, the Rogue
Race:
Human
Alignment:
Neutral Good
Age:
28
Gender:
Male
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
160 lbs
Race:
Half drow,
half wood elf
Alignment:
Chaotic Good
Age:
125
Gender:
Female
Height:
5'6"
Weight:
105 lbs
Descended from an ancient line of knights known as the Silver Guard of
Silverymoon, Illius was disowned by his family for one simple reason:
he chose spell craft over the martial arts.
Yearning to learn more
of the world beyond
Silverymoon, the sorcerer
set out like Rannek: he felt
a strong, unexplainable
pull toward Damara.
Illius specializes in the
use of magic. He has no
projectile combat
limitations.
Zhai is one of the rarest race combinations found anywhere in the
Realms. Her mother was drow, a dark elf from the subterranean city of
Menzoberranzan, while her father was a wood elf from Cedarleaf.
Zhai never felt comfortable being raised on the surface world. She
was not generally welcomed, as people didn’t trust one who so
resembled a drow. Thus, at the first opportunity, she set out to make a
name for herself in the Coldlands, hoping to alleviate that prejudice, as
well as the rage that brewed within her.
Zhai is the most athletic of the group. With her gymnastic abilities,
she can tackle most obstacles. She can also avoid detection by hiding in
natural shadows within the environment.
