THE ORIGINAL QUEST:
A joint venture between the Emerald Enclave + the Harpers + the Lords Alliance to find Delegates from a Missing Caravan, last seen in the Dessarin valley. Amongst the delegates in the Caravan is a Shield Dwarf named "Bruldenthar" (the translator), who held a manuscript with special properties.
Whoever took the manuscript also wants a ring held by an elf from a monastery. They are trying to perform a ritual that they claim will “restore balance to the realm."
