Holinn found himself in a daze after his actions which lead to the death of the Drow. He wandered north towards Silverwind, however found nothing but monsters and peril where peace and safety were supposed to lay. With his thoughts of continued training under his former master Taelis destroyed, he began to travel west towards the destination that the boy killer had pointed him towards.
Meanwhile, two other adventurers had found themselves wandering into Rudstow with hopes of their own discoveries. A sorceress looking for the power needed to stand above all others, while at the same time releasing her true being and potentials. She has traveled across Illdarin with these dreams clenched tightly in her hands and her most recent discoveries are hopefully bringing her one step closer to the top of the plateau. At the same time, a blind monk has crossed the deltas on her path to enlightenment. Her hopes are that someone, or something, will allow her to repay for ill reputed actions in life and reveal a path of true discovery.
All the while, a would-be ship captain has been dumped off by his former captain, Jack Teagues, in this hellish town. He has been spending his time in a tavern, thinking of a way to get to where he rightfully belongs on the social ladder; the top. His attentions lasted mere moments in Rudstow before he began scheming of how to get back onto the high seas and in search of fame and fortunes.
