The Killnarin, summoned into Zaylyn, were sent back by the slaying of Dranngore with The Sword of Anthrowst, but not before they killed the members of the wizard’s guild. The destruction of the dragon’s crystal, that the guild had been using to absorb the magic and life-force of others for themselves, also released the dragon, Baracken, who had been subdued and imprisoned.
Unopposed by his brother, the dragon king, still deep in a magical slumber, his plan is to recruit an army of followers and reclaim lands deemed as belonging to dragon-kind, regardless of being inhabited by humanoid races. Due to imprisonment, Baracken is unaware of the Dragonites, human-dragons, existing for several generations now. Once discovered, this will infuriate him to no end.
Nodwel, the dwarf, is more concerned with protecting those against the werewolf.
The thieves’ guild’s attention is drawn, due to having two half-Dragonite members and fearing Candra’s continued involvement with The Black Shadow.
The all powerful demonic vampire-like being, The Black Shadow, with his growing involvement with the group, the people of Zaylyn, and recent events, many begin to fear that this new threat of the dragon is the least of their worries.
