There are some evils possessed of infinite patience and guile. Dragons are such a force. They are not alive in the same fashion as other beasts, nor do they die. A dragonís flesh is a transitory shell for carrying its malignant consciousness. Even when obliterated down to its core essence, the athanc, a dragon endures. From this unholy stone, a new dragon can be reborn with the mind of the old, quickly regenerating to full strength. No lore or craft of mortals has been able to destroy these dragon stones.
The dragon Everblight was thought defeated by the Iosans centuries ago, but one does not so easily stop the immortal scions of the Dragonfather. Everblight has returned from his prison in the Top of the World and unleashes his newly massed legion of blighted beasts upon the world.
Everblightís undiminished mind conceived an ingenious plan. It would gain its freedom and more without reforming its flesh and blood. Without a body it could avoid its sibling rivals such as Halfaug and Scaefang. It would initiate a new strategy to preserve its immortality, stay hidden from its dragon kin, and carve out its own domain before returning to flesh.
When an ogrun wanderer heard alluring and irresistible whispers on the wind and answered the call, he unleashed a new terror on the world: the Legion of Everblight.
