Hallomak Stromm reports having made contact with the Shadovar mage-emissary Gerin Legatus, and reports that Netheril is in chaos. The Shadow Weave failed, the flying cities and fortresses have fallen, most of the Princes of Shade are dead; others have become hideous undead creatures in thrall to Orcus, as have many lesser Shades. The Thaluud war constructs have gone mad and are roaming freely, destroying whatever they encounter. Hordes of undead ravage the land, emerging from the Shadowfell. Thay has sent demands that Netheril surrender and join their empire; many Shadovar have bent the knee.
