The Phoenix Covenant
The Empire of Nerath faces destruction.
Emperor Elidyr I takes up arms against the Ruler of Ruin and his seemingly endless horde of rabid gnolls, calling on the old covenants with the other free folk of the world to aid in their defense.
Ancient magics are unearthed and new ones created – magics that can rend stone and split the skies to unleash fury and death.
Bargains are struck with powers from the Astral Sea and the Elemental Chaos, with the rulers of the Feywild and the dark mistress of the Shadowfell.
Some fear it will not be enough. And some don’t think that the Ruler of Ruin will stop with Nerath.
And some fear that the powers arrayed on both sides may sunder the world forever. The wise folk of the world gather together on the eve of destruction, and create the Phoenix Covenant.
That the Light shall not be forever extinguished.
No one ever came to let you out.
So, you prepared, honing yourselves into the heroes that the world would need, learning what you could from the Masters of Covenant. You learned to fight, to lead, to work magic and deception. You learned the words of the gods and the whispers of hidden powers. You pored over maps of the Empire of Nerath, though you knew you would find everything changed.
You made ready.
Now, the day is almost upon you. In two weeks, the Phoenix Gate will open, and the heroes of Covenant will return to the world.
All you must do is prove that you are worthy to be among them.
