For a year, unnatural winds and mists have battered the area around the town of Crystalbrook. Worse, bizarre blue-skinned fey creatures have emerged from the fog to pillage and murder. Townsfolk blame these misfortunes on the fey of the nearby Sildaine Forest. The fey, who also suffer, claim innocence, faulting Crystalbrook’s people for hidden black magic that has attracted the wrath of primal spirits.
Problems between the townsfolk and the fey continue to escalate. Crystalbrook’s warriors trespass into the forest to hunt game and the mist monsters, but such intrusions lead inevitably to clashes with elf forest wardens. Townspeople have bullied and cheated fey visitors. Brash fey have stolen livestock from the town’s outlying farms and played harmful pranks on the townies. Sildaine elves tax caravans on routes that pass through the forest. Travelers have been harassed along nearby roads, resulting in several deaths, countless injuries and more accusations.
The course of events changed nearly two weeks ago, when Orlando — son of Lady Anya Tamora, ruler of Crystalbrook — went missing. On the same day, an elf maiden named Juliana vanished. She happens to be the daughter of Lord Carric, chief among the Sildaine elves. Lady Tamora and Lord Carric suspect that Orlando and Juliana are lovers, although the leaders disagree on the specifics.
The loss of, and search for, the missing youths has taken the fire out of Lady Tamora and Lord Carric. Both recently appealed to the ruler of Sybar, a nearby city, for mediation and aid. Count Varis Sybar sees this as an opportunity to head off growing tensions that might lead the Crystalbrook and Sildaine factions to war against one another. Hoping to maintain stability in the region, he sent out a call for adventurers.
