When an inter-dimensional rift-keeper is sentenced for his crimes of apathy, the biography of a world brings him closer to absolution.
It has been over ten thousand years since the final throes of the Great War when the world of Torlenth had faced a seemingly endless global civil war. The Great War’s origins came from the slaying of Dowser, the last chaos dragon and First Follower of Ortrekth, the prismatic god and creator of all dragon-kind. Endareth, the phoenix-winged god, flayed and cast into the Great Void Eytrnys his own brother Ortrekth for the crime against his own First Acolyte. During those many years, however, Ortrekth’s followers, cursed to bear markings similar to those of their now-skeletal deity, have sought out ways to bring their dragon god back to the power he had held before being cast down by Endareth.
Deep below the dwarven stronghold of Starstone Canyon, a mythical metal has been unearthed. A natural stabilizer for magical energies, the metal is the very tool that the followers of Ortrekth need to release their god from his eternal prison.
A small band of warriors, led by a druid with no memory of his past, make an effort to thwart the bestial hordes from taking Starstone Canyon, unaware of the metal and the ancient evil they have crossed in their endeavor.
