Terror under the Lighthouse

In a grueling campaign, Ary with Tomra and the Dwarven brothers Drom and Thom ventured into the secret lair of the horrible undead lord, Lesivith. Ary learned the secret entrance after revealing council member Damarius as an agent of evil. Lesivith, then known as Thulsa Rex, kidnapped the children of Niskantel over a number of months prior to the discovery by the Scarlet Sorceress. Thom the Dwarf was killed by Lesivith's subterranean, undead horde and despite even the direct involvement of both Tim and Zarconus the Lightning Dragon, Lesvith escaped to continue in his dark and unknown agenda.

Lesivith, Undead lord of Orcus
Tim, Sherriff of Dreamwater

Drom of Hammerguard.

The South Yard and the Assassin

It was in the South Yard, the main outdoor merchant square in Niskantel where Ary founded the first school of magic in Niskantel, called The Diamond Eye.

The Night Calling Witch, Morrigan told Ary of the coming of Tomra, an assassin who would become an invaluable ally.

A tortured soul, Tomra learned a new path from journeying with Ary, a path based not on killing for hire, his mode of living, but rather fighting for a cause greater than his own.

Niskantel, The City of Opal

After the Opening of the Shadow Path, Niskantel became a strategic crossroad/gateway town to the Dream Water. The City prospered greatly. The Sherriff expelled the Council of Eagles from Municipal government but retained the Merchant's council as the officiating, judicial body.

Ary Bessallyn

In time, she would be known as the Scarlet Sorceress, emancipator of Niskantel, but when, under the service of the Sherriff, she went to Niskantel, there was no way of telling what lay in store for her...

The Red Fist

North County was a community greatly altered by the opening of the Shadowroad. A gnarled, twisted wild land where dead end fairy trails gleem and faun wights dance. It was here that Arythial Bessallyn would steal away down secret roads that only little girls can find... for long trips as a little girl she would leave Maiah, and it was for this that Tim Tigean sent her as an adult to investigate the goings on of the Red Fist...

After years of peaceful, economic expansion under the warden of the Sherriff of the Dreamwater, trouble stirred in the North Shadowpath in a county given to Goblinkin. The Red Fist began the worshipping practices of the Dark Three once again and began Black Parades recruiting common farming folk from miles around, proclaiming to the People of Niskantel that they were the new order of things.

The Final Battle of the Opening of the Shadowpath

The Epheliun, Ruler of the Deep River Elves of Thraityn, became then The Wraith Caller, or Reada-Dom, and sworn an allegiance with the Blight Powers of Beris to immegrate the lost races of Belerian to the Dream Water.

It was at the Stone of Reada-Dom where the final battle of the Elfkin War of 1104 was decided. A Winner take all situation where, upon victory and the thwarting of Epheliun's plan, the Company of the ShadowPath disbanded and embarked upon their professional lives.
