In the Shadow of Kings
Things are happening in the world of Athas. After an eternity of terror, a Sorcerer-King has fallen, and the city of Tyr is burning. From the ashes rises a new and better Tyr, or so its people wants to believe. Outside of the city walls, an army of templars loyal to the old Tyrant is putting the Tyrian Valley to the torch, and inside, the newly formed senate is paralyzed by intrigues and old feuds. At the same time, the streets are colored crimson from unscrupulous merchant houses doing whatever it takes to get the upper hand in the new trades and thugs and criminal gangs struggling for power. And beyond the Valley in the other city-states, the other Sorcerer-Kings start to awaken in their seats of power, suddenly aware of a new threat to their immortality. With the chaos of the revolution and the godlike powers of the Sorcerer-Kings, Tyr will need a miracle to survive.
