Four brave adventurers set out from the city of Stormreach, on the continent of Xen’Drik, in search of an evil lizardman cult that had been plaguing the local farmers. Deep in ancient ruins, they found the cult leader and slew her. During this adventure, they freed a prisoner by the name of Murin, who turned out to be a wizard and a formerly powerful member of House Cannith. When the players returned to Stormreach, they were soon contacted by Murin, who explained that before he was taken prisoner, he was investigating the ruins of the ancient giants, and he would like the adventurers to continue his quest for him. So the adventurers set out for the giant ziggurat called Ur’Nanshe, where a giantish artifact containing ancient wisdom was rumored to exist.
