Faith is the greatest battle. To fallen paladin Ederras, right and wrong aren't as clear as they once were, and even the forces of good seem tainted by sin. Lost and broken, the formerly righteous warrior joins up with the crusaders of Mendev, the last bastion of civilization fighting desperately against the demonic tides of the Worldwound. There he plans to rediscover his faith—or die trying. Yet even on the edge of total destruction, humanity's base nature runs rampant, leading any crusader to wonder: is there anything left worth fighting for?

Plot overview[]

Ederras, a fallen paladin of Iomedae arrives at Kenabres along with a group of travelling-companions who joined at different times in their quest to add their might to the Crusade. Some came seeking healing from Mendev's Queen Galfrey, others were debtors, cattle-thieves, or murderers, condemned to seek redemption.[1]
