After the loss of first poor Cove and, just days ago, rugged and storied Minoc, now the demonic figure Virtue Bane sends his minions to deliver cherished Vesper, the city of islands, into his vile clutches. For so long now we have toiled through streets of blood and corpses amidst a chorus of agony to preserve the realm. Through these gallant efforts we have largely fended off this mysterious evil. No longer can the grip of darkness be afforded to curl it's grasp around our homeland. We must raise arms once more and preserve Vesper!
