Gareth sees his parents and home burned to the ground by the vicious hordes of Lord Kalwynne. He doesn't see his younger brother and sister anywhere close to where his home used to be. Suddenly, from the corner of his eye, he sees one of the raiders coming at him on his horse. Without any thought for his own safety, Gareth brings the horse down, and the rider. In one moment of forgetting who he was, Gareth seizes the sword of the horseman, and drives it deep in the body. Before he has chance to see who the dead man was, another rider is upon him. Using the sword, he lashes out at the horse, and brings a deep cut to the animal. Falling to the ground, the rider is unseated, but Gareth, with his mind in total turmoil, kills the man with one strike of the sword. Looking back to where he sees the remainder of the raiders, he gets a raised sword from one of the riders before they leave the death and destruction they have brought to the village. Gareth sees the necklace and two rings on the body of one of the two men he has killed. Cutting the rings from the fingers, he now has them as a souvenir. Leaving the destroyed village after burying his parents, Gareth decides on tracking the hordes that had turned his life into a living nightmare. After a while of walking through the forestry, that was close to where he lived, Gareth senses he isn't alone. He sees the horse he injured back in the village, and the deep cut. Tending to the stricken animal, Gareth gains a new friend on his mammoth task of finding his young family members. An ordeal with a large bear, and a strange arrival of the owl, Gareth begins to see that he is no longer alone. Meeting another tribe who had also been attacked, and also given a disfigurement to their faces, due to standing up against this evil Lord, Gareth has four members of this tribe to go with his on his long trek. Only once his journey begins does he realise the power of the rings, and the sudden arrival in the strange mist that forms before ...
