Elminster created an enchanted bauble, the Harp of Stars, let word get about that it was an item of powerful magic precious to the Harper cause, and let the Malaugrym steal it. Then he asked the Harpers to get it back. When played, the Harp of Stars made shapeshifting easier, enabling the Malaugrym to take on larger and more powerful monster shapes when they went hunting (a favorite sport). It did this, however, by causing the life-forces that bind together the bodies of every living thing to rage at random giving short-term strength, but over time weakening the constitution of a being employing the Harp.
In it, he infiltrated the remaining Malaugrym and helped to persuade them that to continue the struggle now would mean their certain destruction. Reluctantly, they agreed. Khelben used the female Malaugryms body to take the Harp, ostensibly to hide it (really to bring it to a place where he could study the mind-secrets it had gathered). Another treacherous Malaugrym pursued the female Khelben was controlling and destroyed her. Khelben only recovered his own wits through Elminsters prompt magical aid.
She acts as Storms chief messenger and go-between, and as the most widely-traveled messenger and spokes-agent of the Harpers of Shadowdale. Elminster, the Old Mage and the Sage of Shadowdale (with expertise in many things, but sought out primarily for his deep knowledge of human history and magical lore), is secretly one of Mystras Chosen. His spells and magical items are far too numerous to detail here, but readers are directed to the FORGOTTEN REALMS® Adventures sourcebook for details of the key spells Elminsters Effulgent Epuration, Elminsters Evasion, and Worldwalk.
