In 1489 DR, two newly hired scribes, Spernik and Tibeem, were discovered stealing books from the Lord's private chambers. Tibeem killed one of the summoned Knights of the Black Fist and was captured, but Spernik escaped. So the Lord Sage hired an adventuring party to find the thief and the stolen books. After the coup of Vorgansharax in conjuration with Harpers he sent adventurers to explore the Yarash's pyramid.
Later Vorgansharax trapped the Lord Sage inside his library in Phlan but he knew too much.
Thank to an adventuring party hired by the resistance he managed to escape Phlan.
