Silas has recently take part in an alliance of elves and men against the tyranny of dragons. He is road weary and travel worn, but heeds a missive carried upon the wings of an eagle to return to Goldenfields, bastion of the Emerald Enclave. Silas sends a bluejay messenger to find his allies Charleston Sageroot and Winston the Beige, old allies in the war against the blight of Netheril. They heed his call and the fellowship is joined. That evening, Silas slays a dire wolf and turns it into wolf jerky.

Unfortunately for the mercenaries, half of them along with their leader are trapped by a vine spell and burned to death. The rest of the mercenaries agree to surrender and depart.
