As two mighty kings struggle for dominance in the legendary Elder Isles - land of faery shees, valiant knights and sorcerers who wield influence as well as magic- a mysterious and beautiful green pearl travels from hand to hand, spreading destruction in its wake...
Now, as Aillas of Troicinet and Casmir of Lyonesse parry and feint in a duel of wits, the mysterious aura of the Green Pearl enters their souls. Its means are subtle, but its effects are great, and as the Kings of Elder ready their swords, even the worlds of the immortals tremble.
