A war raged 5000 years ago between the five kingdoms of the realm Litcoram and the dark kingdom of Selvoria. The war was fought over a power that would give one person rule over everything. The other kingdoms agreed that no one man should rule over anyone and banded together to seal the Selvorians and all Radiance behind a great barrier. The Radiance was kept from The Rule and was distributed between the five kingdoms to safeguard.
5000 years the world has lived without Radiance and it has all but faded into myth and legend. A young man of 15, living in a village that lies close to the great barrier seal discovers that he is developing strange powers and sets off on a journey to discover why Radiance is leaking into the world again and what it means.
