Our heros have spent several quests together. They went to visit an old friend from their unit in the 100 yr war. They discovered she was missing and uncovered a cult dedicated to the Lord of Eyes, Belashyrra, and stopped their plot to sacrifice the town’s villagers. There they discovered the Coat of Eyes.
They took the Coat of Eyes to Stark’s keep, hoping to meet up with a cleric of Pelor, who could destroy the Coat. When they arrived, they found Tom, a priest of Pelor, who destroyed the Coat of Eyes for the party. While there an evil magic fell upon the keep. The Phoenix Five were sent on a quest to undo the magic. They travelled to a forgotten civilization of the sorcerer-kings of Parhok. There they found a race, the Zain Kin, who had served the sorcerers of long ago. The Zain kin were being bullied by a Dragon and his mistress, Dragora. The Phoenix Five defeated Dragora and Mouringlar and lifted the evil magic from Stark’s keep. They hit the front page of the Korranburg Chronicle. They were then approached by agents of The Citadel of Sharn. The adventurers accepted a mission from the Citadel to find one of its agents Jelia and the construct forge she was searching for in the wasteland. They found the Forbidden Forge, and Jelia. Coda took his revenge upon his mother to the surprise of the party members. They then defeated Calamachia, the warforged dragon, and secured the forge for Breland.
Back in Breland, the adventures were put on another mission. This time, by the Draconic Prophecy Sages. Mahalani was a prophecy sage, but had become smitten by the power of the Invulnerable Coat of Arnd. She was becoming too aggressive and was bringing shame on her family. A master of the sages put a curse on her, aging her, as punishment for her aggression. She could lift the curse, and be freed from her duty as a prophecy sage, only if she were to recover a dragon shard. The shard was thought to be in The Pyramid of Shadows. Her companions decided to help her and took up this quest to rid her of the curse. When they arrive to the open grove, where the Pyramid lays, they are ambushed by a group of dwarves. The party defeats them, but one survives, Anias. He believes one of the men in the party are serving a Lord of Dust, and he was sent here to destroy him and all who travel with him. A human named Kren hired his group of dwarves to do the job. They are to meet him back at the Golden Dragon Inn in 3 nights with proof of his success. However, Anias was captured, and learned he was duped. He now has joined forces with the Phoenix Five in their quest.
