For more than a thousand moons, many of the land’s races have existed together, sharing some form of peace. Dwarves mined the snowy mountains, barbarians hunted the icy north, gnomes hid secrets in their massive tree-homes, the tribes of Mazi wandered the world in search of truths and mysteries, and humans pursued whatever greed moved their hearts. Kings dined in majestic halls; peasants tilled the earth; scholars lost their souls to dusty tomes and legendary artifacts.
But one such of these ancient artifacts has been uncovered, and threatens to destroy the delicate balance of life in Piyr. Guarded by soulless undead in the lair of a malicious dragon, a dwarven-forged sword of woe lies, waiting for the cursed son of a murdered human king. His father and brother dead at his own hands, the brutal killer will stop at nothing to claim the magical sword that will give him the power to rule the lands of Piyr in blood.
An unlikely alliance is thrown together by this threat; a human boy, a half-blood troll, an elven prince, and an aging dwarven lord are but a few of the characters thrust into an epic struggle. Treachery, hatred, and black-hearted armies are against them all, bitterness and distrust weaken their bonds from within.
