It’s midsummer in the world of Achiel. The seas are fair, the winds are warm, the sun shines bright over the land — and a terrible plague sweeps through every populated area, killing swiftly and without discretion.

Men, women, and children are dying in droves in the human nation of Solaras, and the Beastfolk fare only slightly better, with entire nations sick and weakened by the mysterious disease. The humans are quick to blame the foul plague on the many kinds of beastfolk, causing already high racial tensions to skyrocket. All of Achiel is in tumult, and it’s up to a plucky band of adventurers from all corners of the globe to stop it before it’s too late.
