More than a century ago, the cataclysmic struggle between the wizards and the mages ended in their mutual destruction -- leveling great cities and reducing grand palaces to dust. From the vast graveyard that remained, the Empress

Ouriana rose up to proclaim herself the Divine Incarnation of the Devouring Moon ruling her wasted realm with the blackest sorcery; turning her priests from men to monsters and setting them loose to enslave or destroy all who would oppose her.

But now signs and portents hint of a champion a young girl, hidden and talented, who is destined to end Ouriana's terrible reign. And now a brave band of heroes must locate their savior princess even if it means being pursued to the ends of the world by the withering fury of the dark goddess herself.
