Tarsak 25, 1484 DR, Year Of The Awakened Sleepers
South Gate, Luskan

The following days the companions aid the Masked Prisoner to his endeavor to gain the allegiance of his old friends. He manages to persuade the three captains of the Drow conspiracy and reveals his true identity to them. The captains agree to follow him against the monarch of Luskan. The resistance grow in power and Harry completes the explosive device. Quinn scouts the south walls and spots the weak spot they will hit. The mechanism is powerful enough to destroy the wall but there is a chance of triggering instantly on activation. Greywulf believes the success of the mission is vital and he is ready to sacrifice himself and one of his men, to ensure the breaking of the wall. The companions disagree with this suicidal mission and persuade the Neverwinter Commander to follow another plan. In the morning as the hoard of Lords alliance sounds the invasion in Luskan, Quinn guide Ethan through the sewers as close to the weak spot as anyone can get, unnoticed. Ethan is invisible and he will put the bomb on the wall and then use his magical cloak to go in a save distance from the explosion. Thornalf with the Neverwinter elites taunt the Luskan battalion away, into the alleys where the forces of the resistance engage in the guerrilla warfare. Ethan quickly moves to the wall. He holds the mechanical device in his hands. He takes a deep breath and press the button. The explosion echoes as thunder beneath the darkened sky.

No! It was too soon!”, Quinn thinks to himself and ascend to the surface from the sewer exit.

Dust is floating, among rumbles of stone and dismembered bodies. He spots Ethan’s magic boots, in the ruins. His friend is lost. He gave his life for the salvation of this city. The last of the Baram is no more, but his memory will remain. The figures of the charging soldiers and the Banners of Lords alliance appears through the dust at the wall breach.

In another part of the city, hidden in the ruins of the illusk Olo with the masked prisoner and his new allies are ready to attack the Kurth Tower. They plan to kill the drow impostor and give Beniago his old life back. The sound of the explosion is their sign to start their attack. But the halfing, feels and incredible pain coming from his cursed arm and a deep voice, echoes in his head.

Come drink with me child. And your suffering will end…
