How can a thief transform into a hero? Pickpocket, Smooth Ackmere, wakes up in a puddle of blood. Shadow Runners, wraith-like warriors from the Twixt, a realm in between life and death, have annihilated his home overnight. Who will stop an ancient evil conquest? A thirst for power, unrequited desire and a touch of insanity drive a Blood Mage to unleash his dark magic and shadow soldiers across Exas. Standing in the wizard's way are a purse-snatcher and seven other survivors of an attack on the city of Finesse. They are thrown together in the chaos and sworn together by their cause to stop the sorcerer’s siege. What will channge the past and save the future? The Exas Eight seek out Cherylle, the Edge Witch of her time, for help. The Witch tasks the would-be freedom fighter with recovering a lost artifact. If the myth holds true, the relic's magical abilities will cross the boundaries of time, and allow them to end the war before it erupts. Will courage prevail when the world seems lost? Smooth and his companions must journey with Wyld Fey into to lore of wyverns. If they fail in their quest, all of Exas will collapse into despair, death and dark magic.
