The heroes arrive in Easting, where an outbreak of Abyssal Plague has occurred. The town priest, Father Evendur, and a Purple Knight of Cormyr named Sir Arveen, are in the midst of an argument about what to do with the infected in the barn. Now infected herself, Sir Arveen wants to slay the infected, then herself, to prevent the spread of the disease. Meanwhile, Father Evendur urges patience and mercy, since half of the infected are sure to recover.
The party enters the barn, where they are immediately attacked by some chaos lasher demons and a dwarf who surrenders at the first sign of real force from the heroes.
