A rumor of darkness and evil swirls across the land, whispering in the halls of the great peoples.
It takes root in the kingdom of Men, a young race but proud, craving what they have been forbidden. They are confident in their tall ships and island stronghold, but what defense do they have from an attack from within?
It haunts the Elves. They have seen kingdoms rise and fall. An old race and wise, they know too well the destruction and horrors of war.
It echoes through the mountain chambers of the Dwarves. Hearty but stubborn, they dig deep, but can they escape the coming doom?
Alliances will be made and old grudges unearthed. Those once friends may become enemies, and those now enemies may have naught to hold onto but each other in the coming storm.
Will they stand or will they fall?
