Lord Regret has been bone and dust for three hundred years, yet the damage he caused the Great Spell worsens, warping the patterns behind all things. The earth trembles, the sun flickers like a candle in the breeze, and falling leaves keep on spinning, never to reach the ground.
The great warrior Rostigan wanders the wilderness with his minstrel Tarzi, disturbed by the growing corruption. When the pair discover that an entire city has been removed from existence, and that ancient threaders have returned from their graves to spread chaos and destruction, he is finally forced to knock the dust from his sword.
Weary of battle as he may be, Rostigan knows that if he does nothing, the world will crumble, and without the world, well – he will never be able to complete his true quest.
