The anchient lands of Algrion are wrought on the bones of magic. Mages, wizards and other magic users practise their secret ways in the name of good or evil under the stern and powerful eyes of Gods and spirits. The races of the land fight for survival, often unknown to each other, against deadly, unnatural foes, dark powers and the claws of Destiny. For example, the sea-faring city of Cas holds one of the most powerful courts ever known in Algrion, the Brothers of Light. These hooded seers are said to be ordered by the Gods themselves in the name of truth and justice but often their motives are far more sinister. Those invited to the Temple of Amrore are never heard of again. From cruel kingdoms to talented back street thieves, Algrion is the birth place of heroes.
