The party has fled from the guard of Caer Cane into the Withered Woods. Their camp gets attacked by an assassin who is after the dagger they have. When they try to return to the city, a search party finds them first. Eutax tries to trick the captain, but a fight breaks out anyway.
The group interrogates a prisoner and decides to leave their dagger with him. Then they travel to the coast, and run afoul of an elderly lady who is supposed to row them to Percy's pirate ship, the Cutter. They pay for passage to Rhayada, and that same night, the ship gets into a sea battle with the royal navy from Avisac.
The adventurers meets Percy, captain of the Cutter. He wants them to help Alvin complete a secret mission. Caldious gathers intel in the boat. The group then lands on an island, and attempts to steal a chest from a Banshee.
The party learns what exactly they stole for Percy. The captain also sends Aramel along with them to Rhayada. In the notorious port city, they meet with a mysterious contact, who sends them on to the Centaur Woods. Before they leave, Skrag meets an aquiantance named Margane who might bring light into the murder of D'Nias' family.
Eutax convinces Margane to come along when they leave to meet Ralphie in the Centaur Woods. On their way to Phalcon, they run into some trouble with the royal guard. Later, their rest gets rudely interrupted.
The group's camp is disturbed by a little girl with a pumpkin who seems lost, but steals D'Nias name. Then they have to fight the girl and her fey friends. Venturing on, they find the hamlet of Phalcon deep in the Centaur Woods, where they meet Ralphie.
The party follows Relious and Nalious into the Underdark, but they want to split soon, suggesting the group takes a more dangerous route to avoid a drow city. They soon meet several myconids, and when Margane wanders into their holy grove, a fight breaks out.
The gang meets Relious and Nalious as promised, but they do not want to guide the party any further. Instead, the drow give them a map and advise them to meet Erika at "The Light in the Dark", which turns out to be a tavern. Erika decides to join them and helps them with gear to dive deep into the dark pool outside her tavern.
Erika and the party dive deep into a dark pool and must fight against the chuul that lurks within. Barely out of the water, an umber hulk attacks them. Later they run into a hostile mining operation from Avisac, so Erika suggests a longer route to avoid it.
The adventurers and Erika have discovered a hidden city in the Underdark, where the legendary Children of Moradin have survived. Once inside, the residents treat the party like saints from ancient prophecy.
The group becomes witness to criminal activity in the city, and the guard seems to adhere to their judgement calls. Later they meet Thoradin, the last king of the Children of Moradin, who explains their prophecy to the group, and that he received it from the Oculous, which he wants them to have. Next the prophecy comes true, and the party has to escape the flooding city.
Having escaped the fall of the dwarven race, the party needs to find a new path forward. Luckily, the solid earth itself rises away from them, grows legs and walks into the sea, catapulting them into the air. They have to fly to safety, landing near the smoldering ruins of Forlonde, where a farmer takes them in for a night.
S'Aind receives a vision from the Oculous and meets her adoptive father. Later they travel north, and meet the fatherly Kish. When they attempt to leave him behind, he tries to abduct S'Aind, so they have to fight his multiplying selves to the death.
The party tries pushing north through the Pachuamong Forest, but starts to get lost, when they hear a strange voice offering them guidance. Eutax follows the tree-like creature, who leads them even further astray to slaughter them. Skrag brings the fight to an epic finish. Later they make camp, and Margane becomes the Master of Names in a dream.
Margane has become Master of Names and Prince of Plenty. He and Morrum are now one, and he gives D'Nias back her name. Then Gavin the Alehouse Drake crashes into a nearby tree and needs help. Later they meet his gnomish troop, who are on their way to Rhayada and have quite the news for the party. The gnomes also help them get back on their way to Phalcon.
Back in the Centaur Woods, the group gets ambushed by assassins from Avisac, who are after the Oculous. Back in Phaclon, the party shocks Ralphie and Erika when they tell them of their adventure. However, the women admit they are with the Order of the Raven, and that they know who D'Nias and her actual parents really are.
