In Port Nyanzaru, Artus befriended an agent of the Order of the Gauntlet and convinced the group to go to Camp Vengeance.  After helping the group fight off some Zhentarim assassins, Artus introduced the group to his friend, Dragonbait. Artus succumbed to the evil of the ring and attacked the waffle crew while they were investigating a crashed airship. The group killed Artus, whose soul entered the Soulmonger. Paultin used Handrew to take the ring of winter from his corpse.
