A group of adventurers seeking glory stumble upon a sage with an issue of grave importance.
The northern Moonsea region has a long and troubled history with dragons and secret cabals.The Circle of the Scale was a sect of druidic dragon worshippers who resided in the foothills of the Dragonspine Mountains. The Circle was led by Skovac, a self-titled Scalebinder, who claimed that he could subvert the will of dragons with nothing but his voice using a powerful relic, which legend held to be a scale from Tiamat herself.
Using magic and the labors of kobolds from the local area, they excavated a vast subterranean complex deep within the mountains in a plot to a lure a dragon within and enslave it. The dragons of the region, however, would not be so easily subjugated. Using a large host of orcs and kobolds, a red dragon called Scorlworyx (The Scorching Wind) attacked the Temple of the Scale and destroyed the sect within. Skovac sealed himself within along with the relic, both of which have remained within the ruins to this day.
Recently, the Cult of the Dragon has learned about the fate of both the Circle of the Scale and the relic, but was unable to find the location of the ruins themselves. To learn more, they dispatched Tibeem and Spernik to Mantor’s Library in Phlan. In the months following, the two cultists would eventually discover the site of the ruins located in the mountain foothills to the west. With the relic in their possession, the cultists hope to deliver it to the red dragon, Scorlworyx, and gain her support.
