Despite the gallant efforts of the defenders, Vesper has been overrun by the Bane Chosen forces. The eastern half of the mainland has now been overcast with a veil of darkness as the demonic Virtue Bane has expanded his grip on Sosaria. The beacons of hope Queen Dawn had crafted, the Bells of Courage in these towns now stand as sordid reminders of this string of defeats. Moonglow and Nujel'm almost seem to stand as islands in an ever more distant sea. Guardians Gate is the easternmost bulwark standing between the Bane-held region and the capital city itself, Britain. Surely, we cannot relent now.
