An ancient evil, a forgotten blade, a glorious tale.
Long ago, the Dark Ones, the Obscurum, were defeated by the god Dominus and the Eternals, soldiers of his Army of Light. Dominus defeated their armies, and banished the survivors to the prison of Fire and Darkness, the Tenebris.
But one fateful night, an army of orcs besieges the city of Aequalis, bringing dark tidings with their arrival: the Dark Ones have returned.
Soon, Peter, son of Lysander, the last descendant of the Eternals, is called to leave the world he knows, the familiar peaks of the Aequalisian Valley, the rolling hills of the Great Plains, the crashing waves of the Nahrung River, and journey out into the unknown.
Peter’s journey will take him from the magical Sage’s Forest, shrouded in mystery, to the soaring, treacherous peaks of the Frigid Mountains, to the great Northern City of Diophantus, to Malumterra, home of the orcs. He will face countless adversaries, monsters of darkness, the most feared beasts of the land.
But ultimately, he will have to face an even mightier foe, the foe within him, who, at every moment of his quest, threatens to turn him from what is right and just.
The armies of Malumterra are rising. Will Peter be able to quell the beast that lies in the dark shadows of Orbis, or will the land be consumed by the hand of the Dark Ones?
