Fueled By Revenge
Drums echo ominously through the jungles, and savage beasts roar at the prospect of the feast to come. Shadows flit through the trees as the Jungle Elves prepare for war. An age has passed since last they were seen, but soon all of Itharia will recall that the Phoenix Elves do not stand alone for all of elfkind. Trained lions move through the greenery, the strongest bearing warriors upon their backs. Those who might spy this secret muster will find themselves riddled with arrows, courtesy of elite archers. And there are those who say even the trees themselves have come alive to join the coming battle. At the head of this army is Abua Shi, a powerful Summoner whose Summoning Stone was earned through betrayal and lies. He is driven by a secret shame, one that can only be set right through the act of violent revenge.
And far to the north, another faction arises from the shadows. They are the Cloaks - a nation of the discarded victims of the vile Bender Empire that rules the continent of Far Esta. Forced to live in hiding they have mastered the art of guerilla warfare. They come in the night landing harsh blows against their foes, only to melt back into the darkness from whence they came. Gunners take out sentries with well-aimed shots, and Scrappers waylay unsuspecting soldiers. And only when the fight is over do their enemies realize they have been looted by Thieves. Heading this force is Vlox, former apprentice to old Leonardo, the dead genius who invented their black powder weaponry. Vlox is the ultimate jack of all trades, and he intends to use his new Summoning Stone to carve a bloody path through the heart of the Bender Empire.
