Long ago while taking one of his decade-long naps, Faugrun fell into a portal to the Shadow Realm that caused him to transform and become corrupt beyond repair. This was caused by a clan of Dwarves who were mining for mithril ore near his lair. The Dwarves by chance stumbled upon the Dragon’s Lair near the heart of the Smagnot Volcano, where inside they found his Horde of endless treasures. In this trove, there was an Obsidian Pearl, that even the Dragon did not know of its powers. When the Dragon awoke, it was too late. he had fully been corrupted by the misery and gloom and was only but a shadow of his former self.
In a nearby town named Sparu, a newly born thieves guild has emerged known as The Shadow Hands, and they have sought out aid from the Shadow Dragon rumored to be sealed beneath the dormant Smagnot Volcano nearby. Once the seal to the old lair is broken, this will set off a chain of events that causes the town of Sparu to be pulled into the Shadow Realms permanently.
