ARE YOU READY TO EMBRACE YOUR DESTINY?
The year is 217 CM.
Over two centuries ago, Terrath's second moon shattered and fire fell from the heavens. Ancient Empires and vast kingdoms that had once stretched across the known world were wiped out in a single day. A chosen few were selected by the gods to survive inside the sanctuary known as Aegis. As they struggled to adapt, they were unaware of the savagery that existed beyond their borders. But now, as overpopulation and a limited food supply have caused the Great City of Av'Talen to become a symbol of corruption at the heart of the realm, the shattered and deadly lands of the old world call out like a beacon to those who crave power and yearn for freedom.
