After serving the King loyally for years in foreign conflicts, an elite unit of knights return home to find it a changed place. Appalled by the discovery that dark magic has corrupted their kingdom and that the King now plans to use them against their own people, the knights devise a plan to assassinate the malevolent ruler. When the attempt on the King's life is foiled, the would-be assassins barely escape into the ravaged lands below the King's floating palace. On the run from an army they once served and tainted by the dark magic of the King's sorcerers, the assassins must survive in a kingdom they no longer recognize. Vowing to avenge their fallen comrades, the heroes embark upon an epic journey to defeat the corrupt King by destroying the sources from which he draws his evil power.
