A mysterious spell had fallen over the bards of Waterdeep, rewriting the past in their memories and adding dangerous new tales to their repertoires. Khelben Arunsun, the archmage of Waterdeep, fears that this spell is part of a larger plot. He calls upon Danilo Thann, a mage and would-be bard, to confront the green dragon who holds mystery. To do so, Danilo joins forces with an old enemy, the rogue elf Elaith Craulnober. Along with his new companions, a gold elf minstrel with strange abilities and a dwarf maid with a deadly wit, Danilo is drawn into a web of riddles and magic. Bardcraft is more demanding than Danilo imagined, and he must find within himself the strength to wield a new and unexpected power.
