After a chance meeting in the Red Haven tavern known as the Drunken Druid, five unlikely heroes— Borf Grundleshout, the dwarf fighter, Enzo the Quick, the half-elven bard, Grunnt, a Warforged elemental fighter forged in the fires of Ebberon, Lady Ophelia, a human life cleric, and Lothien, a dwarven cleric who unlike Ophelia worships a God of War— formed an unlikelier alliance.
United unexpectedly, and after slaying a mad green hag and her two fiendish scarecrows, the five of them took a vote and decided to accept an offer from a Westerner adventurer, a pompous knight by the name of Martell Evenswylde, and join his expedition across the river and seek out just what had happened to the dwarven city of Hallowhall, which had vanished in the dead of night only three weeks ago…
While the the rest of the party headed off back to the Drunken Druid in search of post-battle drinks, Borf Grundleshout, the dwarf warrior who had killed the trickster hag, stayed behind in the alleyway when he thought he spied a satchel of gold.
To his surprise, when he reached out for the bag he found his vision go black and he was suddenly plagued by a series of visions in which he was forced to make the choice of who lives between his mother, and two of the four friends he had made that evening, the dwarf War Cleric known as Lothien, and the human Life Cleric Lady Ophelia. After choosing his mother and sacrificing Lothien and Opehlia to the shadows, the visions disappeared, and the town of Red Keep came back into focus. Shaking it off, Borf headed back to the Drunken Druid to join his comrades, he could hear the sound of distant laughter, and he could feel that he was being watched.

They cross the river, fighting a ghost that had taken control of the Captain.
Journeying deeper into the mountain, the party came under the onslaught of what appeared to be dwarves covered in molten lava— later to be revealed to be the dead citizens of Hallowhall now returned as elemental haunts.
