|A fair but vain king once ruled the land of Tesloniea. This king appointed four officials; three men and one elf, to rule the land in his place and in doing so set about the coming of his death. The officials under the power of the wealthy, careless king soon grew jealous and devised a plot to remove him from the throne. Cruelly they poisoned him and took his place as ruler.

Two great nations prepare for battle and uncertainty hangs above the land like a dark storm cloud. The fight for power has begun.

Sleep appeared to have overlooked this one person but Clarinda knew she was restless for a more important reason. Somehow she felt something was wrong, she had felt this way before…
