Two decades ago Caledon was a different place. It was a vibrant kingdom that embraced those of any walk of life. That all changed when a group of mages who called themselves the Circle of Death set out to destroy life across the kingdom.
The Circle rained down death and destruction across the land, leaving little but ruin in their wake. A young warlord named Morgoth gathered mercenaries and rode hard to intercept the Circle, but they arrived too late to save Ildris, the nation’s capital.
