In the year 902 DR the Lord of Dusklake, in what is today Northern Amn, is slain by a dragon. When the ruler of the neighboring Grand Thentor, Rammast, declares war on the small realm of Dusklake, his young sister Aerindel Summertyn in desperation turns to Mystra for help. She is gifted the power of a magical item, the Whispering Crown, to fend off the attack. What she does not know is that with this power comes a test by the goddess herself.
