He started studying the Spellplague and the Chasm. He was soon contacted by mysterious and powerful "Masters" living in the Chasm that promised him great power in exchange for his service, causing a spellburst that devastated part of the city.
Rhazzad preyed on those stricken by the Spellplague, promising them treatment in his "Tower of Solace". Instead, he used them to power some dark ritual. He also tricked his fellow wizard Tualo the Bright into opening a portal to the Far Realm.
However, Dorothea Linkletter, a victim of the Spellplague who transformed into a monster when emotional, asked an adventurer's help. The adventurer arrived at Rhazzad's tower to give her a medicine. When the adventurer learned of Rhazzad's actions, however, suspicions were raised. Later, the same adventurer closed the portal to the Far Realm in Tualo's house and discovered Rhazzad's involvement.
In an effort to rescue Dorothea from whatever Rhazzad was doing, the adventurer discovered that Rhazzad had sacrificed all of the spellscarred people that he'd taken out of Helm's Hold to fuel a deadly magical explosion. A full assault was ordered on Rhazzad's tower before he could complete whatever plans he had for the Spellplague energy he had at his command. Against orders, Josef Linkletter, a Neverwintan soldier and husband of Dorothea, rushed ahead of the main force and was transformed into a massive foulspawn by Rhazzad, who intended to use him as a testbed for his own transformation. Joseph was subdued and managed to regain his sanity alongside his plaguechanged wife, while the adventurer confronted Rhazzad. It turned out Rhazzad was communicating with unnamed "Masters" within the Chasm, who promised to grant him unlimited knowledge and power in exchange for his help. Though Rhazzad successfully completed his own transformation into a plaguechanged monstrosity, he was slain before he could fully achieve his goals.
