After a series of bizarre attacks just outside the city walls, the Council of Barniss struggles to maintain its status as a thriving trade hub. Hiring a skilled mercenary to put an end to the attacks is only the first step. They also seek out the help of a well-known, although past his prime, wizard and his swordsman cohort in addition to a young woman raised within the dark and dangerous Thelirian Woods. Her knowledge of the forest would help guide them on their journey, but what was their quest? It should be a simple task, they had thought. By finding the abandoned temple of Thorin and retrieving the relic within, they could bring Barniss back its recent financial plummet. As they soon discover, in the world of the old and forgotten, nothing is as simple as it seems.
It becomes clear that they are not alone within the ancient temple and, in time, find themselves locked in battle with a mysterious warrior clad in black armor. One by one, horrible truths of the past, hidden by time, come to light and the heroes find themselves in the epicenter of darkness. A race against time ensues that will take themto the very edge of this world as they fight to stop the coming storm.
