Glorhelm, the exiled elven prince; Carant, the wry druid; Rozeka, the mysterious witch; and Anagil, the dour dwarf. Unlikely travelling companions, they are nonetheless thrown together through various quirks of fate, and when they stumble upon news of a strange quest, at first it seems to be nothing more than another way to make a living. Along with some new companions – a priest, a princess and a thief – they set off in search of five precious and rare artefacts that will save the life of Princess Faro, sole heiress to the ancient throne of Lerwichamian. Of the Seven Magic Kingdoms of Tala, a land now ravaged by the consequences of a violent and deadly war, only Lerwichamian now remains; but it is diminished, the line of Kings broken, and under the rule of the amoral Baron Fro.

As the party journey through Tala, subtle clues begin to emerge that embroil the party in a tale far more important and desperate than they could have realised. Why has Kajan Thar, the Baron’s Chief of Staff, chosen a greenhorn such as Baranil the inexperienced priest to accompany them? Why has the Baron not been seen in public for months? Who is this curious necromancer who has allegedly ensnared the Princess in her sleeping state? Can they really trust the seemingly kindly Payadanian, head of the Church of Haltor? And then there are the secrets held deep inside the members of the party themselves…
