Broken by the departure of the gods, the world is in chaos. Servants of an ancient entity unite under a dark banner to gain control of the remaining infrastructure. They call themselves the Pursuants. Commanding their forces is the powerful warrior Kleave, whom bards sing of with equal amounts of fear and awe.

Although Kleave's forces dwindle with each assault, they push onward to take the remaining kingdoms. Faced with unprecedented horrors, his violent campaign will reach a decisive, bloody turning point at the gates of the tower lord. Alliances are made and lives shattered on both sides of the conflict, and a new power will emerge from the fires of war.
