From the back cover:
Two thousand years ago, Ogres and fell beasts drove the nomads from their vast, rugged lands west of the Guardian Sea. Seven hundred years later, Dwarves, Giants and Men joined forces to slay and scatter the intruders. Now this remote land cradles such wonders as the underwater city of Gagian. Who carved the 18,000-foot high man-mountain, Mount Baikal, which holds a lake in its prodigious lap? Spies from the reckless Shoneb Empire regularly infiltrate the Jan's military and political hierarchy, but why? Rumors of an invasion are rampant, but the nomads are fierce and unyielding.
Today adventurers search for mineral wealth and healing herbs in the nomad's land. The folk of Batai may scoff at rumors of a dark cult rising in the depths of Deadmar Bog - but what about the disappearances from the nearby town, and the strange orange glow deep in the swamp on moonlit nights? For a handsome reward, will you outwit the "Servants of a Dark God"... or join a dark, unending dance to celebrate the Unlife?
