Phantoms of the Past
The mountains stand proud. The trees grow tall. The War of the Ring was won. But not all of Middle Earth is at peace.
It is the twelfth year of the Fourth Age. King Elessar protects Gondor with his rule, the prosperity of the kingdom rising. As the Shadow of the past fades, there comes an ever increasing strength to the Age of Men. But the East remains distant, an ember from a once raging fire. Rumors seethe from its borders. Something is stirring, yet it seems to remain distant.
And the threads of relations begin to be tied-strained and entangled-while unbeknownst to the prey, the predators creep nearer, and nearer, and nearer.
The drums of impending doom echo across the far-stretched plains.
A long buried secret reveals itself, bringing with it a weapon far more dangerous than the tip of a blade.
