The rise of Zelegith
The Siege of Neverdusk and the great illusion
After his first attempt to conquer Neverdusk failed, Zelegith regained his strength and while the party of adventurer’s were away searching for the hilt, he struck the city with his full force. During the siege he managed to capture Neritor’s family and was able to blackmail him into luring the adventurers back to Neverdusk after they got the hilt.
As part of his trap Zelegith had his court wizards create the greatest illusion ever thought possible, this was to make Neverdusk look like it was never under seige and make all Zelegith’s soldiers look like regular city guards. The adventurers came back to the city and with this trick Zelegith was able to get the hilt back and form his sword, and ascend to godhood.
