The Goblin Invasion Is On...
...and a wizard's paintings is rarely performed! After dealing with a hopeless siege, an implacable foe and an most unlikely break out, you'll imagine that Minalan the Spellmonger will be capable of leisure -- however the armies of the undead goblin shaman Shereul (known because the useless God to his human sufferers) are rolling over the western reaches of the country Duchy of Alshar and is headed towards the guts of the Duchy of Castal. millions are fleeing for his or her lives as hordes of goblins pour out of Boval Vale and devastate the rugged fiefs of the Alshari Wilderlands. And the super-charged shamans of the lifeless God are making protecting the area nearly very unlikely for the outnumbered Alshari nation knights.
While the 2 Dukes play feudal politics to additional their very own ends, the one those that appear to care in regards to the invasion are Minalan and his outlaw warmagi acquaintances -- and they are busy dodging brokers of the sinister Royal Censorate of Magic.
But if an individual does not arrange a military in northern Alshar quickly, then there'll be not anything to prevent the armies of the divinely-powerful useless God from conquering all 5 Duchies in his genocidal quest for vengeance.
But issues are only now not that straightforward: he has to deal with a beautiful younger Shadowmage assasin who works for a mysterious spymaster, a cocky new manservant, a dysfunctional workforce of suddenly-powerful warmagi, the Censor normal, and a number of whiny nobles sooner than the Dukes will supply him the troops and funds he'll want -- and the Dukes have plans in their personal. If Minalan the Spellmonger cannot foyer the courts of Alshar and Castal to interact -- and quick -- the hordes of the useless God will sweep over the frontiers of either states. Worse, the mysterious Umbra veil he has erected round Boval Vale might come to imperil all 5 Duchies.
Minalan could relatively simply pass domestic and enable the Dukes deal with it, yet his judgment of right and wrong will not allow him. a person has to forestall the lifeless God . . . and that somebody occurs to be him. past politics and plots, goblins and trolls, mercenaries and magic, the Soulless and the shamans, Censors and mystery orders, for Minalan there's merely the concept that his baby is to be born in a global with such risks, and that's anything he can't permit.
It is time for the Spellmonger to choose up his mageblade, summon his allies, and visit struggle back . . . as a Warmage!
