Bloody ideology will tear apart the world's factions and unmask the pitfalls of prejudice...


It is a time of intrigue, fanaticism and rampaging armies. Distrust of sorcery has set off a purge of the talent mageborn -- none reviled more than Arithon, Master of Shadow. Through clever manipulation of events at the hands of Lysaer, Master of Light, Arithon's very name has become Anathema.

Now the volatile hatreds that spearheaded the campaign against Shadow have overtaken all reason. Those that still stand in Arithon's desperate defence are downtrodden, in retreat and close to defeat.

The stage is set for ultimate betrayal...
