This could herald the dawning of an age of peace, unknown in this area for years past. However, things are not progressing as smoothly as planned. The powers of Entropy, headed by Alphaks, are out to ensure that this peace treaty is not finalized. Two of the diplomats are kidnaped?and you are framed! It's up to you to prove your innocence. This involves traveling to other dimensions, meeting vampiric spirits, and playing deadly games with the Night Spider.

Talons of Night can be played as a sequel to Vengeance of Alphaks.[1] While in search of the Periapt of Pax, the player characters encounter a ghost ship, spatial spiders, and the sinister people of Thothia. Peace negotiations between Thyatis and Alphatia are about to start, and the King of Norwold asks the player characters to get information about a previous agreement at the library of Edairo on the Isle of Dawn. At the library, the party receives clues and then travels to an ancient temple where there are puzzles to solve. From there, they seek the lair of the Night Spider and an ancient artifact. When the party returns to Helskir for the summit, they are framed for the kidnapping of the Emperor and Empress. The party must travel through the Outer Planes to the Sphere of Entropy and Entropy to rescue the royals and avert a world war.
