|“|| Beautiful, powerful, mysterious, and deadly—the silver-haired Seven Sisters are legendary throughout the Forgotten Realms.
One rules the city of bards, Silverymoon. Another is Elminster's beloved and the infamous Witch-Queen of Aglarond. The third is the Lady Mage of Waterdeep, peer and consort of Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun, and the fourth is a Harper and one of the famous Knights of Myth Drannor. The fifth is a leader of the Harpers and a legendary bard in her own right, and the sixth is a dead—perhaps undead—witch. And the seventh? She's the one who wild tales are whispered about all across Faerûn around many a fireside late at night.
But who are they, really? Their very names conjure up romance, allure, and power—Storm Silverhand, the Simbul, High Lady Alustriel. Sages say they are among the Chosen of Mystra, archmages who wield magic few can dare stand against. Yet these seven do not seek to rule the world, and they often stay quiet and hidden for generations.
That hints at another thing. These seven seem immortal, never aging as the long years pass. Just who are these Seven Sisters, and what are their secrets?
