Ever since the ancient wars of mages, the world has been a dark place. As to the Distorted Lands, regular folk avoid them like plague. Yet this is now your new home. You built a mighty tower, the Spire of Sorcery, where you can research and develop your Art. Your magic powers bid disciples from all over the land to come look for you. Other forces are looking for you, too – and their intent is much darker... Yet your most powerful enemy is Time itself – the approaching death from old age. Only one thing can save you: the elixir of youth. Several ancient manuscripts mention it in passing... There must be a way to learn the formula. There must be a way to obtain the ingredients... Before it's too late.
