Magnus Flamel and Liara Ta’li arrive in Falshire two days prior to cure the mayor’s son of a contagious disease. Presently, the Sunstrider brothers, Egrem and Grageon, are passing through Falshire on their way to locate stolen artifacts of their god Sarenrae. Grageon heals the mayor’s son just as the town is attacked by goblins and rats.
The four help the town’s guards defeat the horde but not before some children were slain. The Sunstriders offer to find the root of the attack in nearby farmlands to the north. Magnus and Liara agree to follow the brothers and help them in their quest.
They travel north to the farms, finding each farmhouse empty. The further north they travel, the more destruction they find to each farmhouse. When they came to the last farmhouse before the forest they decided to sleep for the night.
In the morning they ventured off into the forest, eventually coming upon a cave in the side of a mountain. As Grageon entered he was blindsided with a strike by a morningstar. The party fought off a pair of goblins and this guard of the cave.
