THE GATHERING, Part 1 of 4. An ancient evil rises and once again threatens the Realms. Only a motley band of adventurers can stop it now. A surly dwarf warrior and his benevolent centaur companion, a gladiator who survived the Manshaka Arena of Blood, a fallen paladin, and a timid half-elf must somehow find a way to work together if the Realms are going to survive the coming darkness. Includes character sheet for Priam Agrivar and information for the Guardsman of Waterdeep and the Staff of Withering.
