The town of Winterhaven stands watch over a ruined keep that was once a bastion of good in the realm. This keep overlooks the Shadow Rift, a dark scar in the world that was once a gateway to the Shadowfell but has been dormant for many years. Now, an evil cleric of Orcus, Demon Lord of the Undead, seeks to re-open the gate, and the only thing standing in his way is a small yet determined band of heroes.
Heroes arrive in Winterhaven, clear out the threat of gnoll marauders, defeat Irontooth, explore the Keep, defeat Kalarel, Scion of Orcus and prevent him from summoning Orcus into the world. Party’s Cleric named Delias dies soon after due to dark energy arcing off of a statue that he attacked.
