"The heart of civilization is stained black.
The city of Cier'Djaal, made wealthy by the silk of its monstrous spiders, has become a rich man's battleground. Thieves wage a war in the shadows of its alleys. The banners of foreign armies are raised behind its walls. Savage tribes seethe on its borders. And things ancient enough to be a God's bad dream lurk beneath its streets.
Lenk came to put the violence of his adventurer's past behind him and lay down his sword. But as ready as he is to let go of his blade, his blade's not ready to let go of him. And with it, he'll either save Cier'Djaal or destroy it.
Swords will be sharpened. Demons will rise. Cier'Djaal will bleed."
