The Empire of Nerath faces destruction.
Ancient magics are unearthed and new ones created – magics that can rend stone and split the skies to unleash fury and death.
Some fear it will not be enough. And some don’t think that the Ruler of Ruin will stop with Nerath.
And some fear that the powers arrayed on both sides may sunder the world forever. The wise folk of the world gather together on the eve of destruction, and create the Phoenix Covenant.
That the Light shall not be forever extinguished.
No one ever came to let you out.
So, you prepared, honing yourselves into the heroes that the world would need, learning what you could from the Masters of Covenant. You learned to fight, to lead, to work magic and deception. You learned the words of the gods and the whispers of hidden powers. You pored over maps of the Empire of Nerath, though you knew you would find everything changed.
You made ready.
All you must do is prove that you are worthy to be among them.
