— The story begins in a post-war era after a
legendary mystic defeated an ancient kingdom. This primeval creature
was known as the Shadow Knight. His conquest caused the loss of the
greatest mystics, artisans and leaders. The Shadow Knight was one of
the last of his kind and his struggle to keep his race alive led him to
abandon all restraint. His narrow victory came at the price of losing
most of his army.
The destruction caused a mass exodus leaving only smugglers, thieves, would-be craftsmen and self-proclaimed mystics left to rebuild. Two kingdoms became the world’s centers of trade and commerce. They grew under the watchful eye of the Shadow Knight; unaware of the power growing in the North. The Shadow Knight' minions prompted the two new kingdoms to squabble, giving his battered army time to rebuild and re-arm while he reveled in anticipation of what was to come.
In each kingdom, a prince was born to oppose the Shadow Knight and fulfillment of the prophecies. Each will question his values and his duty in the face of what honor appears to demand. Each will lose someone he depends on for his deepest guidance. In the end, one will rise to leadership and become a beacon to all who encounter him. He must chose who will live and who will die as he prays for the wisdom to make the hardest decisions of his life.

A friend and mentor has killed another and must own this act in the eyes of their mutually adopted youngling who is no helpless waif.
