The Empire of Wyrm's Friends works to transform its land and people into a gigantic, mystical dragon, which will take flight and reshape the entire world. The Second Age is a time of unprecedented discovery and exploration. For the first time, trade and travel allows the interaction of far-flung cultures. Both Empires innovate feverishly, unveiling new forms of magic, new devices, new modes of perception. Against this backdrop of unfettered progress, dark omens gather. Men have pushed the Glorantha's eternal laws of myth and magic to the breaking point. How long will it be before the world strikes back at them, punishing their unprecedented hubris?
