Vatrale is a Shaper. He possesses the ability to shape stone and wood with the strength of his will. Together with the woman he loves, they discover a portal to another realm.
It is a void filled with creatures of shadow eager to break free. Before Vatrale can grasp what they have done, the portal collapses, and his love is gone.
A creature of darkness has been unleashed into the world. It drifts from village to village. The dried husks of its victims are the only sign of its passing, leaving a trail for Vatrale to follow. Although whether his quest is one of vengeance or redemption, even he could not say.
