The Mages of Marvenda (1) : The First Tale of the Mages of Marvenda
The land of Marvenda is a peaceful place, open grassy fells where sheep graze, and villages of peasants who own the Mages, and the abandoned castle of the long-vanished Knights. The Mages destroyed them, so that no one would contest their rule over Marvenda. But when in defiance of Custom a young couple seeks out the Knights and enters Gurthold, the last Knight restores the Order and claims them from the vengeful Mages. The Mages should not try to stamp out this last spark of the second Order of Marvenda, for if they do then the avenging ghosts of the ancient Knights will burst out of their tombs.
