Shards of Crystal
On the Wings of Ravens
Del has told the party that she received a vision from her goddess that there is evil lurking near Winterhaven.
Keep on the Shadowfell (part 2): The party found a dragon figurine carved of obsidian among the effects of a kobold wyrmpriest. On the bottom of the figure is etched the outline of a skull with ram’s horns. The symbol of Orcus, demon lord of the undead.
Keep on the Shadowfell (part 3): The party found the lair of the goblin called Irontooth, who wrote the letter to Szartharrax. After defeating the goblin and his kobold minons the party found a letter from the mysterious Kalarel addressed to Irontooth.
My spy in Winterhaven suggests we keep an eye out for visitors to the area. It probably does not matter. In a few more days, I’ll completely open the rift. Then Winterhaven’s people will serve as food for those Lord Orcus sends to do my bidding. —Kalarel
Keep on the Shadowfell (part 4): Kamal talked with the local wizard in Winterhaven, Valthrun the Prescient and during that discussion Kamal learned that Valthrun’s master Tavaglinni had come to Winterhaven because of rumors that the Keep guarded an important secret: A portal to the Shadowfell. According to Valthrun his master had repaired the failing protections on the portal that ensured that it wouldn’t be used to bring foul things from the Shadowfell through the portal. Valthrun has checked on the portal since his master’s disappearance some 20 years ago, with his most recent visit being over a year ago. At that time Tavaglinni’s wards and seals had remained intact.
