For many years, the nations of Phealtos and Meillis had been at war with each other. However, 37 years ago, a small group of merchants was able to establish a politically neutral town, Goswarth, in between the two nations. That buffer zone allowed Phealtos and Meillis to grow to accept each other’s presence. Recently, however, Flame, a mentally unstable mage, has arrived in Goswarth, threatening the uneasy peace. The chance of war? Almost certain.
