|“||Regular attacks by creatures of the wild turn life in Daggerdale into a nightmare. So when mercenaries offer protection for a fee, does it matter that these were the old enemies of the past? A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in the Dalelands for characters levels 4 - 7.||”|
The adventure starts off as adventurers stumble across a merchant caravan bound for Dagger Falls under attack by gnolls. After the ambush, the adventurers learn rumors of the Zhent Headless Horseman of Daggerdale and soon arrive in Dagger Falls. In the town, they learn that Zhent mercenaries are helping to fight off gnoll raids but a concerned Constable Morn asks for the adventurers' support in a meeting with the mayor. At the meeting, attempts are made to convince the mayor not to hire the Zhents and the adventurers are sent to seek out a gnoll hideout.
Along the way, they encounter a drowning dwarf who points them in the right direction to find the gnolls. Upon finding the gnoll cave, the adventurers locate proof of the Zhents' involvement in the gnoll attacks. However, as they leave, a group of Zhents confront the adventurers but the sudden appearance of Swift Elyan disguised as the Zhent Headless Horseman scares most of them away. Finally, back in Dagger Falls, the adventurers are able to finish their meeting with the mayor with evidence of the Zhent plot.
