Powerful sorcerers, magic comes easily to them, as easy as breathing. They forged eternal bonds with the aloof gods of Law and Chaos, with the hideous demons from other planes, with elemental lords that are of the world itself, and with the ancient dragons that Melnibone used to enforce her might. But wealth and age has dulled the Bright Empire, tarnished it beauty, and weakened its people. The empire rots from within. And outside, young kingdoms arise on the lands Melnibone's sons and daughters carved from the stuff of chaos that lies at the edge of the world.
