It is said that over 400 years ago, a powerful sorceress Belcorra Haruvex ordered the construction of a stone-wrought keep on a quiet shoreline near the city of Absalom. From here, she plotted a wicked revenge against the city of Absalom in return for the exile her family faced at the city's hands.
A strange magical device known as the Gauntlight shone from the keep's highest tower -- its eerie glow an omen of her hateful plot. For within Gauntlight Keep, she had covertly assembled an army of evil and chaos, which she planned to unleash upon Absalom.
But four brave heroes, known as the Roseguard, ventured into the keep and slew Belcorra in her own halls. Gauntlight Keep fell quiet for hundreds of years, decaying into ruin. But a secret had eluded the world... that a sprawling vault laid hidden beneath the keep, where an army of darkness bided their time, awaiting their mistress' return.
Now, the Gauntlight shines once more, signaling to the world that Belcorra has returned to re-enact her wicked retribution. A group of fearless heroes have gathered to confront an army of evil 500 years in the making -- and unravel dark mysteries that have lain dormant for centuries.
