In this book the player, as a young fisherman, travels to Solani Island, which lies near his village at the south-east coast of Allansia, to discover what has happened to the four elementalist wizards who are supposed to protect the coastline. The island, however, has turned into a haven for the undead, as one of the elementalists had meddled with magic beyond his control and driven his colleagues into a murderous conflict. Only when the elemental gemstones are recovered and united may the quest be completed successfully.

Title
