Lucca and Veraun quickly found themselves embroiled in the civil war gripping the eladrin city of Cendraine. Allying with a Cendraine warpriest named Armand, the trio repelled an enemy strike force before returning to the city to celebrate an important Cendraine victory.
However the celebrations were cut short when our heroes followed a suspicious butler named Chesman to the Temple of Therion, where a powerful artifact known as the Celestial Tear was kept. There Chesman revealed himself to be an undead spy in the service to the megalomaniac Starlord Evandor. The party, however, didn’t have time to celebrate their victory over the vampire: immediately afterward Evandor launched a full scale invasion of the city.
