"A universe in peril over centuries long plague is now under direct threat for a planar assault. With Mages of all races losing life and sanity to the "Taint" there is no one to turn to for the closure of mysterious gates letting in perils from a world of shadows. What is causing this galaxy wide assault? Is the Taint itself involved?"
Searching for a way out of the wastes the team managed to come upon an open gate to some other place- and standing before it a great dragon. Left with few choices they gang splits, divided by prejudice and duty. The PALADIN's accompany the only remaining Magister back into town, looking for his comm crystal, while Kaiya, Mili, and Duncan return to the temple where Kaiya was taken. Their goal? Reclaiming the ships left by the PALADIN's to find and rescue Toran.
