Black as to white, or many to none One as the moon, the other the sun Command of all things in nature enjoy But one to defend, the other destroy. . . 2500 years ago, a race of immortal Powerborn known as the Lyx dominated the world, enslaving all of the lesser races and pushing the world itself to the breaking point. At the height of the Lyx’s power, Fate intervened and unleashed the most dangerous weapon in its arsenal: the force of nature known as the Harbinger. Though its power is nearly limitless, the Harbinger is purely a weapon of last resort, for once it has been released it cannot be controlled--it can only be destroyed. Furthermore, there is only a single opportunity to stop it before it completes its destiny and destroys the world, and that opportunity is granted to only one being: the Champion. In the Valley of Fire, the legendary battle in which the Lyx were consumed in the fires of the Harbinger, the Champion struck down his foe and saved the world from annihilation, but not before it could set into motion a new cycle of destruction which will lead to the rise of the next Harbinger. In the years since the fall of the Lyx, an empire built by Zarryiosiad, the Powerborn who successfully led humanity in a 400 year-long war against the Lyx, has splintered into warring countries. The island nation of Illymar, the wealthiest of the countries and the one-time home of Zarryiosiad herself, has seen its fortunes decline and its dominant position weaken to complacency and corruption from within. Ambitious and warlike Dakkadia wants to capitalize upon Illymar’s weakness to expand its territory and influence using their new weapons of war, but standing in their way are the Ferralin Empire, and the Mage Guard of Ithram, an army of Powerborn sworn to uphold peace on behalf of the Zarryiostrom, the church formed in the name of humanity’s greatest heroine. And watching from the shadows is an ancient race of immortals who quietly shape events, working toward a purpose all their own, as a threat more terrifying than the Lyx lies in wait.
