“Instead of talking about the glory of battle and the amount of kills they would achieve, the Veirlintus and Galenvargs respected the Leigheasan custom of celebrating life. They shared their game and told stories that made them look foolish, brave, and everything in between. Couples danced and embraced each other for what could be the last time. As the Faileas Herimen enjoyed the last of the waning light, a portion of the Duine army was moving into position outside Dún. Instead of a beautiful valley to gaze upon at sunset, the Faileas Herimen looked out to see a sea of soldiers and an alternating series of trebuchets and siege towers.” ~ excerpt from The Great War by D. W. Saur
It has been centuries since The Great War and the four sects of Sori have come to live in relative peace and harmony. Sori’s Caomhnóir judges the occasional crimes in Bala’s markets and the severity of punishments deter the majority from temptation. Besides the crimes committed in Cala’s boundaries, the sects of Sori saw an era of prosperity.
Though the sects prospered, this euphoric state was not destined to last forever. A dark, almost ghost-like, figure arrives in Sori and begins to upset the balance the land has come to enjoy. The figure plots and manipulates members of the Galenvarg and Veirlintu sects into rebellion. Upon the arrival of the figure, the Goddess Nantosuelta selects a Leigheasan named Maya as her chosen one to eliminate the threat and prevent another Great War.
To many Leigheasan, Maya was not capable of being a chosen one. She had not completed their rite of passage, was powerless, and isolated herself from those her age. With Nantosuelta’s blessing, Maya begins her quest to find her powers, prevent war, and establish herself as leader among the Leigheasan.
