The Crimson Talons are hired by the Rajah of Estagaund to fight the hordes of Veldorn, the land of Monsters and its Birdeyes are sent to scout and investigate the frontier town of Thruldar that broke contact with the capital.
After neutralizing the supply line for Cor Marak’s artillery, The Birdeyes are pitted against a new weapon of the Tiamatan Army: a deadly magical poison that animated the dead as ghoul upon death. They must quickly find the origin of that weapon and stop it spread on the battlefield or Djerad Thymar will be quickly swarmed by undead.
Meanwhile, General Aporos fights General Cor Marak and their armies are upon each other.
With the old priestess of Tiamat in tow, the Birdeyes infiltrate the Citadel of Black Ash in order to honor their part of the deal with Nagiru and free her followers. They discover a very old fortress occupied by many unresting souls and a few zhentarim soldiers roaming its secret corridors.
Upon achieving their mission, the team must then participate in the Battle of Djerad Thymar and are sent to neutralize the enemy’s supply lines.
The Birdeyes are assigned the task of bringing back the deposed rebel leader, and priestess of Tiamat, Nagiru, to life and to help her retake her temple from the “Blacksaddle faction”. For this, the group involve Gregor the Healer to ensure the Spellscarred priestess won’t pose a threat to anyone upon her return.
After a quick and decisive battle against the forces of Tiamat in Djerad Thymar, the Birdeyes are promoted to the ranks of corporal and rewarded by Blue Ghost. They later watch the triumphant return of their general and can realize her popularity among the dragonborns. A political battle then starts to decide the next step in the war against the rebels: reach out for peace and compromise or push and obliterate the rebels.
