Plague in Conterra
While traveling with the Priestess of the Noon Day Sun, Arla, on a quest to deliver the Journal of Anaxagoras to the Helian Fortress in the metropolis of Stormbluff, the bandits moved past the riverside city of Conterra. The city appeared to be deserted and apparently suffering from a siege of some kind.

The bandits made their way to the Battle Brothers stronghold where they were hired to traverse to the Fat Friar, a tavern that was supposedly full of food and secured from the plague. They found it infested and fought for survival. They discovered the Helian Cathedral was protected by its Sun Orb and got inside where they determined that if they input the cure into the sun orb’s power supply, they could cure all the infected.
They discovered the Spider Lord Voras was creating a dark cloud over the city to keep the sun orb’s power low. They defeated him and he teleported away. They retrieved ingredients for the cure an put them into the sun orb’s power reserve. The plague was removed from all the townsfolk save one girl who raced towards the docks. There they made battle with the demon that possessed her, eventually banishing it from this plane. The plague defeated, they returned to
