Nestled amid the round-topped dunes of the Endless Desert lies ancient Ahlamabad, the City of Wonders, the Jeweled Throne of Heaven. You are a thief – one of the best in the ranks of the Zhentarim – and you’ve been invited to prove yourself by attempting one of the most important and dangerous missions yet attempted by the shadowy cabal.
Your team’s objective: to kidnap an infant child from the depths of the Violet Temple, seat of power for the tyrannical Church of Uzzal. But blindly forcing your way into the church’s most fortified keep will only result in your death or worse – lethal guards, weird beasts, unusual traps, and undead sentinels all await in the temple’s hallways, not to mention the plague that’s rumored to infest the poor souls who dwell within.
To succeed in your missions, preparation is crucial – explore the city’s many colorful districts, question the fascinating locals, and pursue detailed side quests to learn the temple’s secrets and ready yourself against them. But be quick about it: you have one week to produce the child, or you risk becoming the Zhentarim’s next target.
