[edit] Background

Three years have passed since a tremendous storm struck the village of Vale. Isaac, having dedicated himself to the study of psynergy since that day, prepares for a study session with Garet, Jenna and the scholar Kraden. Their studies take them into the depths of Sol Sanctum in the hope of learning the secrets of alchemy. But there are others that seek entrance to Sol Sanctum for other reasons. After events at the sanctum take a turn for the worse Isaac and Garet are tasked with stopping this mysterious group from lighting the four elemental lighthouses and releasing a terrible power upon the world. The pair are joined by two other "adepts" as they chase their foe across Angara and into Gondowan. With the aid of the Djinn, elemental creatures, and using a vast array of psynergy powers, Isaac and his allies strive to prevent the lighthouse beacons from being lit.
