It is the year 1251. For 103 years, Gaea has experienced a period of relative peace.

Following its victory in the Deserter’s War, Carlen has prospered thanks to its booming economy, and is now under the rule of the newly-elected Prime Minister Thalen.

Thorren never fully recovered from its loss in the war. When King Forneth‘s death was made public, Forneth’s distant cousin Peter was crowned, but after a short series of short-lived monarchs, 13-year-old Edward now rules the nation.

In the north, Terlun is still under the control of Mad King Kun, who is now a baffling 412 years old. Even as it becomes more and more isolated, Terlun grows in power.

In the feywild, the four Eladrin houses have banded together following the loss of Astrazalian. Under the visionary leadership of a man known as the Prophet, they have taken back much of their ancestral lands and more, driving back the fomorians and all other fey who oppose them. They have even forged an alliance with Queen Sennise of Fanoria.

Our heroes (Arsen, Damien, Igorek, Kerem, and Zebith) are working with the Prophet to combat the drow. This ongoing war between the Eladrin and the drow has turned into a sort of magical arms race: each side is rushing to find out more about the powerful art of spirit-binding.
