A dragonborn smith, crafter of wondrous items beyond compare, is trapped by his own failure and his desire to right a terrible wrong. Here he offers items of powers to the champions that have come to face the evil within the sacred lake, an evil that consumed him in life. They need his power, he needs absolution, and so they will work together.
The initial corruption is difficult to see, but crossing the boundary of the lake brings the wrath of the fallen spirits. Closer to the source the blight is more obvious; a storm within the peaceful creatures that once guarded this place. And within the shrine itself, the source, an entity of pure chaos, a guerilla in the unending war that grips this island. All falls before their might before they are rejoined by the spy and the guide.
