Shadow Star is a jewel of an island amidst endless blue waves. Cities dot the sprawling landscape, connected by pebbled roads and crystalline rivers. Dragons and phoenixi soar the skies, whilst unicorn hooves pound a tattoo on the earth. It is a beautiful land, home to all manner of people - graceful elves, proud centaurs, inventive humans, and many more. Would that it were as peaceful as it appeared...
But a desolate island just off Shadow Star's southeast shore holds a fearsome enemy: the forces of Chaos. The armies of the Chaos Realm are almost constantly waging small battles on out-lying Shadow Star towns and villages. The forces of Shadow Star's Realm Unity are spread thin, and every attack eats away at its defenses.
The Unity Council has called to all keeps, towns, provinces and villages to send recruits to the four major cities of Cascadia Falls, StarScape Mountain, Oceanica, and Kiridia. That call is to you, as well - will you answer it?
