Unwinnable: Exactly. Drizzt always maintains an innocent outlook and it seems that the Dahlia character acts as a lens to the new politics with her more realistic and almost dystopic view. Do you think it was really your intention to balance out the viewpoints from classic fantasy like Drizzt to a new modern form?
Is she almost his Virgil as he is traveling into this Inferno? No, that is really not what I was thinking, but it does make sense now that you say it. You do a lot of things by accident and people accuse you of brilliance. Meanwhile, Sylora used the power of the wand that she had been given to magically construct a fortress, which she named Ashenglade, in Neverwinter Wood. When the stronghold was completed, Sylora prepared to continue her campaign against Neverwinter and the Netherese.
Once Valindra and the group of Ashmadai reached their destination, the lich met the entity that she had been seeking, a mysterious woman named Arunika, who was actually a succubus and a representative of the Abolethic Sovereignty. Arunika informed Valindra that the Sovereignty would be willing to ally with the Thayans in their war against the Netherese, and she also promised that the aboleths would help the lich with her insanity.
Around that time, Barrabus arrived in Neverwinter on behalf of the Shadovar and offered to help the people of the city defend themselves when the Ashamadai zealots attacked.
After their visit to the farmlands, Drizzt and Dahlia entered Luskan, but the elf woman chose not to magically disguise herself until after they passed through the city gates. Consequently, Dahlia was recognized as the individual who had killed the High Captain of Ship Renthor, one of the five factions of Luskan, over a decade earlier.
Drizzt and Dahlia made their way to the apartment of their drow companion Jarlaxle Baenre in order to see if he and the dwarf warrior Athrogate had survived the adventure in Gauntlgrym. The pair could find no sign of their missing comrades and were soon attacked by pirates and thugs who served Ship Renthor, which sought revenge on Dahlia.
Drizzt noticed that Beniago seemed to possess the jewel-encrusted dagger of his old nemesis, the assassin Artemis Entreri, but he concluded that his mind was deceiving him and it had to be a different weapon.
Sylora continued to gather her Ashmadai and ashen zombie forces at Ashenglade when Hadencourt, a malebranche also known as a war devil in the service of Szass arrived at the newly constructed fortress. Sylora then assembled a small contingent of her forces to attack Neverwinter.
At a predetermined time, Alegni led his Shadovar soldiers into the battle and easily defeated the horde of Ashmadai and zombies.
However, instead of Alegni being regarded as the hero of Neverwinter, the people of the city cheered for Barrabus, who suggested that the prominent bridge be renamed after him. Following the victory over the Thayan forces, the Netherese began to reestablish their presence and power in Neverwinter.
After they were rescued, Drizzt and Dahlia were taken to the stronghold of Ship Kurth and offered an alliance with the faction, which they were forced to conditionally accept.
While Drizzt was asleep, Dahlia secretly left the apartment to steal a valuable diamond from the jeweler of Ship Kurth. Dahlia soon found herself in a desperate battle against Beniago, who wielded a magical life-stealing dagger, in a room that was rigged with floor traps that she did not know. Although defeat was inevitable after Dahlia was injured and poisoned by one of the traps, she continued to fight the assassin. When Dahlia then fell unconscious because of the poison, Drizzt took her to the farmhouse that the two had previously visited and begged Meg for help.
The farmer woman told Drizzt that she would notify the local herb man, but that they would need a dose of the poison to create an antidote.
Drizzt returned to Luskan and traded the antidote from Beniago for the promise that the drow warrior would support him in the future once the assassin had taken the title of High Captain of Ship Kurth. Drizzt returned to the farmhouse in time to save Dahlia, who had been very close to death. Hadencourt soon revealed himself and attacked the two companions, and he summoned several legion devils and spined devils from the Nine Hells to assist him.

Drizzt returned to the farmhouse in time to save Dahlia, who had been very close to death. Hadencourt soon revealed himself and attacked the two companions, and he summoned several legion devils and spined devils from the Nine Hells to assist him. The couple hoped that they had escaped from the devils, but the spirit of Dor'crae tracked them down and informed Hadencourt where they were.
When battle was once again joined, Drizzt and Dahlia managed to kill the lesser devils serving Hadencourt, and the malebranche himself was impaled against a tree by Andahar, who had been summoned by the dark elf. As Hadencourt was dying, he promised to get revenge on Drizzt, who tauntingly told the war devil that he should join forces with Errtu, a balor who wanted vengeance on the drow ranger.
Draygo demanded that Alegni complete his conquest of the region and defeat the forces of Thay, and he also commanded his young apprentice, a misshapen tiefling warlock named Effron, to assist Alegni. Although Alegni and Effron openly despised each other, they had no choice but to work together.
Meanwhile, Sylora and Valindra met with the Sovereignty ambassador in an underground cavern near Neverwinter. Jestry was later brought to the aboleth ambassador and magically transformed with enchanted umber hulk skin.
Also at that time, Alegni was visited in Neverwinter by Arunika, who was called the Forest Sentinel by the citizens of the city. Shortly afterward, the Thayans used a small force of umber hulks that served the Abolethic Sovereignty for a subterranean assault on Neverwinter. As Drizzt and Dahlia continued their journey toward Neverwinter Wood, the drow began to share his past and recount stories of his old companions. The couple was soon attacked by a group of Shadovar, and Dahlia exhibited a brutality that Drizzt had never seen in her before and did not understand.
Meanwhile, Barrabus and Effron were assigned to work together and hunt down Ashmadai in Neverwinter Wood. After the battle, Alegni learned that Dahlia was making her way to Neverwinter Wood in the company of Drizzt. This information enraged Alegni because he now knew that Dahlia was actually a young elf whom he had raped and impregnated years earlier, and who had thrown their child from a cliff soon after it was born.
Hoping to use the situation to his advantage, Barrabus volunteered to journey out alone to kill Dahlia and Drizzt. Barrabus devised a plan to capture Dahlia alive and force Drizzt to battle Alegni, but when the assassin ambushed the elf woman, he was immediately subdued by Drizzt. The drow ranger looked at Barrabus and was stunned to recognize the face of Entreri, whom he had thought long dead. Drizzt did not believe that Barrabus was actually Entreri, but he was soon convinced when the assassin revealed intimate knowledge about the dark elf that only he would have known.
Drizzt proposed a truce among the three, suggesting that they work together to kill Sylora, but he and Dahlia were not certain that they could trust Entreri.
