Adventure synopsis


The adventure begins with an Umber Hulk attack in the middle of the city.  The fame gained by assisting during the attack allows them to gain the notice of a representative of Davked Splintershield.  The group is asked to rescue Zenith Splintershield from a Kuo-Toan temple in the Underdark.  But to find it, they have to visit Crazy Jared to locate an entrance to it.  Upon journeying to Crazy Jared's, they fight Hookface's offspring.  After more travelling, they are able to descend into the Underdark.  Once they find the Kuo-Toan temple, they must fight through many hard challenges, only to realize that Zenith is not a prisoner, but instead is a prophet.  Zenith does not go willingly, and so must be captured.
