After six months of searching, Paelias locates the Shadovar Emissary Gerin Legatus in the Netherese city of Oreme. Paelias rescues Gerin Legatus & 4 Netherese soldiers from rampaging Thaluud Tomb Tappers - Gerin & Paelias destroying one each; most of the soldiers are squashed but Paelias leads the survivors out by the Shadow Roads.
In Waterdeep, the group meets Hallomak Stromm - and Selune. Selune blesses them and their gear; the priests supply Potions of Vitality.
Transported by Paelias to the Gloomdeep Caverns north-east of Oreme, they battle Cyclops and their Carrion God, seeking the Tomb of Sartine and Gerin's promised secret approach to the Pillars of Night, where Orcus holds Shar in Thakorsil's Seat. Gerin is horribly wounded by the Carrion God but survives, to be tended by the two soldiers with him.
