Terrazil is a world of unending conflict. Since time immemorial, this tiny speck of dust has been the center of the struggle between the forces of creation and destruction. The players in this battle have changed throughout the ages, with most participants not even aware of the larger battle being fought in the shadows. The Dragons were one race that called this world their home, and when they saw that they were slowly losing their eternal struggle they decided on a drastic course of action: They put all of their hope in the possibility that their blood would make the other races strong enough to maintain their diligent watch. Two boys-one nearly a man, the other a child of unexpected potential-are both descendants of those brave members of Dragonkind. For one, his world is about to expand beyond anything he could have ever imagined. For the other, every day that he survives is another small victory. Victor Deus, a name spoken with awe or whispered in derision. There are few names that can elicit such reactions across so many worlds. When one mentions Victor Deus, however, the name Shawnrik is never far behind. Shawnrik has been known as many things-defender of the innocent, destroyer, malcontent, and loyal friend. However, if there is one thing that even the most ardent detractor of the man who would become Shawnrik Heartstone can agree on, it is that if it weren't for this individual, the universe would be a much different place. Nearly a man, we find Shawnrik in a strange place, the likes of which he had never thought existed. Shawnrik's story, as always, is irrefutably entwined with that of Victor Deus. Both boys are on a personal journey that will play a big part in determining who they will become. For one, his journey will be that of hope and redemption in a world far more complicated than he ever realized. For the other, pain and darkness become a comfort in a world where he doesn't even know his own name. Events are occurring on the continent of Terroval and beyond that will forever change the fate of not only these two boys, but the world itself, and plans that have been in motion for years will finally come to fruition. Heroes will fall as the new generation either rises to the challenge, or falls into darkness.
