In response to a summons, you have come to the village of
Daggerford in the Sword Coast, where a Turmishan wizard
named Imaniis seeking adventurers.
“Hail heroes!” Imani calls out from the front of the hall.
“I have gathered you here today at great expense. Some years
ago, I traveled with an adventuring group known as the
Company of the Sunlit Sea. Like many of you, we hunted for
treasure and lore. One item in particular caught our attention—
the fabled Diamond Staff of Chomylla. Said to unlock
the ancient secrets of the elf loremasters of Uvaeren, this item
was tracked to a forgotten temple of the dead god Bhaal. We
had no idea what trouble we would find inside.
“The Cult of the Dragon and one of their terrible creations,
the dracolich Dretchroyaster, have possession of the
staff. My friends and I braved the dangers of the dracolich’s
chambers and caverns in search of a way to claim the staff,
but we were forced to turn back when I triggered a trap that
left me burned beyond healing.
“My divinations of late have revealed that Dretchroyaster
and the Cult of the Dragon are pouring eldritch energy into
the staff in an attempt to unlock the secrets and power of all
Uvaeren. We cannot let the ancient knowledge of the Lorelands
fall into the hands of the cult. Such magic in the service
of evil would have untold consequences to our world. I have
brought you together to do what I and my adventuring companions
could not. You must enter the vault of the dracolich
as a single overwhelming force and recover the Diamond
Staff. The fate of the Coast may rest in your hands.
“You must travel into and throughout the lair. I have for
you copies of a map penned by my former rogue adventuring
companion, Hadarr. Some details might be outdated, but this
should aid you in determining your course for entering the
lair of the beast.
“Tymora lend you speed and good fortune.”
