War rages in Midkemia but behind the chaos there is disquieting evidence of dark forces at work.
Quiet palace coups are underway in Roldem and Rillanon; and the King of the Isles has yet to produce an heir. In each kingdom a single petty noble has risen from obscurity to threaten the throne.
An unknown player appears to be orchestrating these conflicts. Can Pug and the Conclave of Shadows track down this source before Midkemia is destroyed?
