Aethor and Taramitsu decide to join with the Far Hearth rebellion and are sent to the Summer Manor of Duchess Anaise in search of a missing company of soldiers. In the jagged crags of the Highmount Peaks they found the bleak, deteriorated township that serviced the Summer Manor. Overrun with Undead, a Large Wyvern, and a mysterious Giant Archer, they fought their way through, finding the slain company, and pushing into the Manor itself. There they fought and, seemingly, killed a female Necromancer, bearing a symbol on her forehead, identical to that of the Necromancer at the Tower of Shadows.
Soon after, they found the Giant Archer in a ruined tower. He had made it his home as he hunted the Wyvern that stalked the area. Though the Giant’s skill with the bow was great, his ability to traverse the tight crags was not, and the Wyvern cunningly avoided the open. So it came to be that the Duo of Adventurers combined their efforts with Himskgaeir, who shot the Wyvern out of the Sky, leaving Aethor and Taramitsu to track the beast in the mountains and finish the job.
