Legend has it, there was a time when Magic was real -- when dragons roamed the earth and wizards wove spells of healing and legerdemain. But, for reasons lost in the mists of history, the enchantment vanished. And now, Magic is but a myth.
But Hulhc, a lowly farmer, has discovered his long-dead father's journal of wizardry. And Hulhc believes magic still exists. He must find the absent power, for only a true miracle will save his beloved dying wife. And so, in the company of stalwart adventurers -- including the mysterious mercenary, Rabble, who is not what she seems -- Hulhc sets sail across the Sea of Truth, encountering pitched battles, untold wonders and challenges aplenty on a glorious quest to restore Magic to the world.
