The Silent Blade
Loss of empathy might well be the most enduring and deep-cutting scar of all, the silent blade of an unseen enemy, cutting at our hearts and stealing more than our strength; stealing our will. For what are we without empathy? What manner of joy might we find in our lives if we cannot understand the joys and pains of those around us?
I am not certain that Wulfgar has that capacity left to him. For empathy requires introspection, a reaching within one's thoughts, and I fear that every time my friend so looks inward, all he sees are the minions of Errtu... the sludge and horrors of the Abyss.

The dark elf leads his friends on a mission to destroy, once and for all, the evil crystal shard, not realizing the full power of the call of Creshinibon.
Returned from the Abyss only to find his world crumbling aroundhim, the barbarian Wulfgar struggles against an old enemy that may not be as deadly as the demons he carries within him.
The assassin finds himself embroiled in the power struggles of the darkest streets of the mysterious Calimport and the even darker caverns of Menzoberranzan. But still his greatest enemy eludes him.
