In the sequel to Brotherhood of the Blade, the story takes place eighteen years after your peaceful home city of Koryn Thal was invaded by a powerful and dangerous warlord. The warlord has taken over as emperor with a reign of oppression where the helpless people are either enslaved or killed by his vicious minions. During this time there is a secret race of shapeshifters who mysteriously begin to disappear, bringing up fear of a plot to eliminate them. As a result, they begin to flee towards the edge of the city towards the walls to evade whatever is capturing or killing their ancient race.
You are a member of this shapeshifting race, and in the process of literally running for your life, you and several others come across a secret that brings hope to your people that peace and freedom may yet have a chance.
