On May 2, the threat upon Neverwinter continues with the release of Shroud of Souls! When breaking the warding runes on the Kelemvorite Crypt, Lukan set free the necromancer Morlanth.

Shroud of Souls will take adventurers to Evernight, a twisted reflection of Neverwinter inhabited by both unsavory living residents and the undead. Heroes will also enter the Shard of Night, a spire from the Plane of Shadows belonging to the Netherese.
