Paltrus, the prince of the powerful nation of Dhelian, is sent by his king to resolve a dispute between two neighboring kingdoms, but the dispute soon expands to the far reaches of the world. The ancient lost city of Arrburdak is believed to be found. Its secrets, “Potential unknown and power unused,” may soon be rediscovered, and the two kingdoms will go to war to obtain that power. When investigating the supposed entrance to the city, Paltrus finds himself in the unknown land called Shallice, where he learns that the seemingly minor dispute has roots in the fall of Arrburdak and the founding of the nation of Morband.
Note: Shallice and Morband contains some graphic violence.
