Against the Rise of Terror
The heroes finally have the tools they need to stop
the Whispering Tyrant, but the lich-king has not been idle. Why has he devoted
so much attention to an isolated border fortress, right when divinity seems to
be within his grasp? A quest to discover the tyrant's secrets plunges the heroes
into a deadly race through a fecund forest, into fearsome dungeons built long
before the Shining Crusade, and between spiteful villains harboring ancient
grudges. Old enemies stand in the heroes' way yet again, but unexpected allies
can help turn the rising tide of death and despair. If the heroes are
victorious, they can seize the only chance to deny the Whispering Tyrant his
greatest weapon and strike him down before he gains the power of a god.
