Cormyr is known as the Forest Kingdom, a name it bears for good reason for it is a land of peaceful forests and tilled fields whose people live in peace and security under the benign rule of Azoun IV.
Of late, though, troubles have begun to beset the kingdom. At the turn of the year, dark cultists took over a border keep and threatened the mountain village of Winterhaven while goblin raiders and slavers made the passes of the Thunder Peaks all but impassible. Then, as spring came, dark things arose in the Hullack Forest and trolls attacked Sunset Hill on the Wyvernwater.
Now, the leader of the slavers, a Red Wizard named Paldemar is abroad in the east and bold adventurers have set out to track him down.
