For centuries, dragons fought to rule all. Driven by rage, corrupted by darkness, they were a scourge of fire and fury that would not abate. Only humans stood in their way, a brave few in each generation born with magic. Wardens, who used their power to protect life and fight back against the dragon menace. But the dragons were cunning and used guile to destroy their enemy from within.
When the Wardens fell, the world fell with them.
Without their protectors, humanity was hunted to the ends of Eralle and eventually to extinction. Cities burned beneath the onslaught, along with every forest in between. Trees wilted into ash and did not grow back. Food became scarce, life even scarcer. Older dragons chose to hibernate, while the rest were forced to scavenge or turn on one another.
All seemed lost, until a young dragon came upon a human egg, fashioned by Warden magic. Inside lay a promise of renewal, a chance at redemption. A gift of hope that might become…
…the Warden’s legacy.
