Until recently, the town of Neverwinter (population 17,000) enjoyed a period of peace after centuries of attack from orcs who streamed through the mountains to the east. Neverwinter's leader, Lord Nasher, struck an alliance with the nearby city of Waterdeep and brough calm to this volatile region near the Neverwinter River.
But now, new dangers threaten the tranquility of the town. Neverwinter is besieged by monsters that terrorize the residents and pave the way for conquest by the Five Captains of Luskan, a hostile neighbor to the north.
Lord Nasher invites to his castle all adventurers who wish to defend Neverwinter against its brutal enemies. Great treasures can be found in this savage land, and if you and Nasher succeed in returning peace to the region, bounty could be yours. But if weapons and magic fail you, your quest could come to a hideous end!
