As our story begins, we meet Bethany, a drifter with a hero complex who finds herself in the town of Llyne in search of someone in need. She finds her mission in the name of Emory Van Craggan, a fifteen-year-old boy who went missing while fetching supplies for his family from an adjacent village.
Despite the warning of bandits potentially being involved in his disappearance, Bethany embarks alone on an adventure, hoping to rescue the ill-fated boy. What resistance will she find in her quest? What will be the fate of young Emory? And, perhaps most important, how will Bethany's powers of necromancy affect her journey into the unfamiliar?
