Synopsis

“The stars are high, the plain wide. The world awaits the coming of Sorrow...”

An uneasy peace has descended over the World Apparent. The Winter Realm and the Old Kingdom are recovering from the cataclysmic events of the Twelfth Reconquest, while in the south, the Djanki and the Sharib retreat to lick their wounds from the battle at Temple Rock. To the east, the divided Empire of Temeria is nearing the end of a long civil war, in which rival Generals have fought like mad dogs to seize the long-vacant Imperial Throne.

Meanwhile, in an obscure and barren desert, far away from wars and politics, a peaceful nomadic tribe is attacked at night and wiped out by a mysterious enemy. There is only one survivor, a young boy named Sorrow after an ancient prophecy.

As the world looks for redemption, those who crave total power will stop at nothing to get to acquire the child, Sorrow.
