I can tell you this much. Venture-Captain Donatellus Bisby was famous even before he left for the Mwangi expanse. But when he and his companions returned, they had proved themselves Pathfinders of historical renown. One could have expected that the names of Donatellus Bisby, Ilnerik Sivanshin, Ian Holman, and Kalen Holman would have become legendary, even given the Chelish disdain toward the Society. The artifacts, rare animals, exotic spices, and unique magics brought back did amuse the aristocracy for a while, and things Mwangi were briefly all the rage. But something went horribly wrong.
According to what I’ve been able to piece together from fragments, the group brought back a powerful artifact that granted powers over light and darkness. Arguments over who should be the rightful owner began, and the friendship between the patient, thoughful Ilnerik and the flamboyant Bisby grew. After a falling out, Ilnerik and Donatellus became fierce enemies, and Ilnerik fled the city because he could not stand watching Bisby take credit for what he saw as his own triumph.
The Holmans leave a confused apccount in the records. One source says that they left to live among the dwarves, another that they remained in Westcrown after the sealing of the Lodge, and were active in the Bulwark, a resistance group dedicated to returning Aroden to power. They were apparently petrified by a Thrune wizard who saw through their disguises. Those statues have not been found; much was lost in the confusion surrounding Aroden’s death.
It is my belief that Roygart is the true born son of Ian and Kalen. If Bisby or Ilnerik is still alive, Roy will be the best person to deal with them. I also hope that he can find some answers as to what happened to his parents.

Blasphemers! How dare they attack the Living God Bisby? Do they not understand that Aroden had to die so that Bisby could live?
They must have been sent by my enemy, the dark one, Ilnerik! Long has he wanted the Morrowfall. He will not have it! I will destroy his minions, and from such a victory I shall raise new servants. They shall speed the name of Bisby across the land.
Then, I shall do battle with the Dark One himself. With the light of the Morrowfall, I will sear his flesh and blacken his bones. I shall burn him to ash and dust and then I shall be supreme!

The man was impatient.
He had feared this day was coming. As soon as the priestess arrived, he knew that Drovenge and the others had sided against him. Would he regain favor in time, or would they send someone? And if they did send someone, who would it be?
Ilnerik? Doubtful, Oberigo feared the loss of control over the shadows.
Zol? Good in a fight but no great thinker. Zol would undoubtedly kill many guards, but he could be fooled; Bucholz could outrun and outwit Zol. So that meant he would not be sent.
He needed to regain favor with the Council. Which meant profits. Which meant getting rid of these grasping heretics. It was simple, really. Gesturing to two of his bulkier guards, he drew himself up from the ornate chair to his full height, knowing full well the effect his impressive finery would have on the simpletons.
“You, take this letter into town, and deliver it to the Black Shrine in Westcrown. Give it to the first Asmodean you see there.”
“You, take two others, and move the three of the beasts into this room. Go”
And as Bucholz realized who they were likeliest to send, he began to write another letter. It was a such a pleasure to work with professionals.
