The surprise attack from Shothan was repelled, the forces of the Witch King are scattered. Now is the time for vengeance! Never before has there been such an opportunity to strike at the heart of the Witch King. From the depths of Ravenwood, the ageless Shothani Witch King has plotted the destruction of Durlab for centuries. Now, as a result of his failed attack on Durlab, he’s vulnerable.
The Consuls of Durlab have no intention of letting the Shothani ruler reassemble his army, nor will they leave their city exposed to attack. The Consuls have voted to send small, elite forces in a counterstrike against the Shothani Witch King. Fearful of infiltration by spies and agents of the Witch King, however, each of the three consuls has assembled his own small, elite force, each a shard of vengeance, aimed at the heart of the legendary Shothani leader.
Consul Tarquinius has asked the PCs to join his strike force.
Meanwhile, An unnaturally large dark leopard paces in the back yard of his new masters property as his partner deliberates the offer. Hungry, for vengeance.
