Alaezdar thought he had found a perfect home in a small farming community of Valewood. Here, he hoped he could bury his past and hide from his mercenary guild that has a death price on his head. His hopes are shattered when an evil sorceress, a wizard, and his goblin-like, bloodthirsty followers raid the village and kidnap a teenage girl, taking her deep into the goblin tribes forest for a sacrifice. During the raid, the villagers see Alaezdar’s skills with his magic sword, Bloodseeker. 

In desperation to save the girl, the villagers convince Alaezdar to attempt a rescue so dangerous that they will all most likely die. Before the ordeal is over, he will also learn much more about his role in an ancient, elfin prophecy, where he is the catalyst to the realm’s destruction, and where his death is imminent if he is to turn the prophecy around.
