A thousand years since the remaking of the Old World, an assassination becomes the first thread in a steadily unraveling prophecy.
The only clue points to it being the work of the warring Tribes in the west, and a newly self-proclaimed king is determined to show his strength in revenge. But he will not stop there.
The king sends Arkus Galarus, General of the Caldoan Legions and hero of the Incursions, to the inhospitable desert wastes the Tribes call home, and there he discovers the truth.
War is coming to his world; a war far greater than the machinations of the king, and he alone can stop it.
For a darkness waits at the edges of the world, and its coming will herald the end.
