Two months have passed since the murder of King Kalak of Tyr. Slavery has been abolished. Freedom is apparently restored. The Champions of Rajaat are restless.
In the Tablelands, rumors fly. Something called The Face in the Stone. The Lost Cistern of Aravek has been found. The sand raiders are restless. Templars from Urik travel abroad. One evening a group of adventurers convene in Altaruk, a few hundred miles south of Tyr. This is where the great tale of the Desert Age begins.
