Twenty-five years ago, invaders overpowered the royal army, captured Andropolis, the capital of Thalacia, and ended the rule of King Leonard and the House of Richmond. According to prophecy, the invaders can be ousted and the royal line restored only by wielding the Aglaril, seven elven gems of unprecedented power.
Evan Pierce, a priest of St. Michael, discovers one of the gems belongs to the town jeweler. He also uncovers their plot to steal it and does what he can to keep it safe. But it is not enough and a thief working for the necromancers makes off with the precious jewel.
Now, Evan must recover the gem by relying on a motley group of adventurers for help. Together, they must overcome a series of obstacles or humanity's one hope for restoring the royal line will be lost forever.
