Life-long friends, they
went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each
holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world
shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales with strange monsters,
creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their
secrets. Not then. Not until a chanced encounter with a beautiful,
sorrowful woman who bears a magical crystal staff draws the companions
deeper into the shadow forever changing their lives and shaping the fate
of the world.
No one expected them to be heroes.
Least of all themselves.
