The implications of Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsen "choosing" the last two lords of Shadowdale (Doust Sulwood and Mourngrym Amcathra) were not lost on the Dale's more powerful neighbor to the south, Cormyr. An agent was sent northward to divine Mourngrym's true intentions and to guarantee the Dale's good relationship with the throne of the Purple Dragon. The agent was a rogue named Shearl Rowanmantle, sent by Vangerdahast (though all paperwork on this matter has been curiously incinerated in Suzail, so all is hearsay and tale). Shearl discovered more than she intended and fell in love with young Mourngrym. The two married and became the lord and lady of Shadowdale. Shearl's loyalty is now to her husband and to the land they co-rule. This was probably not the intention of Cormyreans.
