The party along with the newest member, Balzur the Moon Elf Necromancer, travel to Brynn Shander with Zephyrous in his cloud tower. Their mission is to let Sherrif Markham know that his sister has died in the cloud giant bombardment of Nightstone. Along the way, the party encounters members of the Howling Hatred who want Zephyrous to join their cult. After the party vanquishes the cult, Felgolos makes a reappearance and asks for assistance freeing slaves imprisoned on a Zhent caravan. The caravan turns out to be an ambush to kill Felgolos, but with strange luck and focused skill the party defeats the Zhent dwarves.
