Told of a rumored Drow invasion, Tylok and Lywin travel from Shadowdale to Myth Drannor to retrieve the Sword of the Dark Elves for their elven informant. Exploring a tower and underground levels, they find the sword and Fenstra. Upon return of the sword to the elf, he seethes over with power and is destroyed by Elminister.

he was defeated and slain by his powerful spells. Upon victory, Tylok donned a
