With the looming threat of the Nursery purified by the heroes and mercenaries of Freehold, the time has come once again to cast their gazes back unto the surface of Midworld. Spring has returned all of its verdant grace upon the forests and fields of the Hinterlands. Beasts and other threats awaken from a wintry slumber to hunt amidst the wilderness.
One such creature, a massive wolf-like beast, has been reported demolishing the farthest steadings and farms with a ruthless strength — tearing buildings asunder so that nothing but ruin remained of the dwellings and holdings. Alongside this creature are the vengeful druids of the Dusken Vale and their hatred for all the works of civilization. There are even reports of other monstrous beasts striking alongside the Druids, a great bird of prey and a lightning-swift serpent. Yet, those who have studied the tragedies of recent years need little information on what menace lurks in the horizon:
Morrath, an Immortal of ruinous might, killer of the last Pendrakken King, has returned to the Hinterlands to wreak his vengeance upon Freehold.
