Mor'dresh, Call of Darkness
Vaal'bara Historical Society - Volume I
Laurence P. Cromwell was once like many of us, navigating his life without direction or purpose. Through desperation, or perhaps a series of strange childhood occurrences, he became obsessed with the notion of true Magic. Scouring countless shelves, he searched for that one old tome or relic which might reveal itself to be something more, something Magical. He knew in his heart he was destined for great things, if only he could make that first, crucial discovery. But as Laurence - and two others who would share a similar fate - would soon find out, not all Magical objects exist to be used, to be possessed - and some are better off left where they were buried long, long ago...
Beginning on our planet, in the prosaic time period known as present day, the Vaal'bara Historical Society series methodically tells the story of a group of unsuspecting heroes as they gain the courage and experience necessary to traverse billions of years, multiple worlds, and countless twisting timelines to discover the truth of humanity's Magical past, as well as the monstrous destiny awaiting not only our race but that of the universe. Will they succeed in restoring Magic to its prior state before time runs out, or will the forces of darkness prove too powerful, too tempting, even for them?
Prepare to pull back the vale, revealing a world of dark Magic and demons, of a battle that goes beyond good and evil, where heroes and villains clash not only with each other, but with their own precarious trajectories and inner turmoil. But beware, dear reader, as you take these first steps of your own journey, remember this: nothing is ever quite as it seems...
