For three centuries, the Legions of Regan kept the land safe and secure. Two years ago, the Eastern Legions were swept away by the invading Gnoll horde, who burned their ships behind them. The Crown Prince stopped the Gnolls at the Coral River, but the last two years have proven that neither side can push the other back, and the river marks a new and tenuous border. North and west of the river, in the valley of Ravensong, hardy frontiersmen carve out a living, and in the dwarven village of Gregholt, a group of young friends test their mettle against the wilderness around them.
In the sky, the stars burn red at night, herald of change and shadow to come.
