A message has just arrived, claiming that the Enchantress of the North has been slain. If this is indeed true, it is welcome news. The Shadow’s power seems to grow in proportion to that of his lieutenants, and when one of them is removed, it certainly weakens him, as well.
Still, I cannot help being ill-at-ease. So many questions remain unanswered. The Enchantress grew in power so fast and had connections to so many other powerful forces. By removing her, have those others been stymied in their plans, or… are they now accelerating their own power gambits?
Carn the dragon-lord. Carzag the necromancer. Zarthor the warlord. Gison Thorelon. And others I’m sure I have not even heard of… what are they even now putting into motion?
