The Free Tribes, a throng of powerful beasts, clans, and small villages have encircled Caastigen, the capital of Sindara. At the beginning of this unnatural war, five strangers awake in an alley with no visual memories and a splintered collection of knowledge; Alisandra, a musically-talented half-elf, Sir Calvorn, a wretched knight clinging to his honor, Bromli, a dwarf caught up in his own viewpoint and contraptions, and Vadik a half-orc druid hell-bent on dolling out justice to the guilty. A secretive elf named Tyriel infers that greater forces are at work and asks for their help.
The group sets out across the treacherous landscape to retrieve an ancient relic, the Trident of Fate, which contains the power to see the past, present, and future. This fragmented weapon may be the key to ending the war and returning their memories, but as their own pasts unfold, will they discover who they can trust, or will they collide and destroy each other.
