The story opens with Prince Nirron, successor to the crown, mourning the great loss of his father, Stalaran's King. Through a magical messenger of his own, Nirron sends the white dove to his brother James in Camelot, requesting relief from the monstrous Dark Army who are bringing unbearable suffering to the people of Stalaran. Meanwhile, Camelot is rising with renewed strength. Then the dove arrives from Stalaran to whisper her message to James. Unable to control his grief and wait for the support of his fellow Knights, James heads to Stalaran first, to fight beside Nirron and defend his homeland. Although James has been warned he would face unparallel evil on the road to Stalaran, he will not be left to face it alone. Not only does he meet the beautiful Saraina who was sent by the Ancient One to protect him, but King Stefan and his Knights are also quick on his heels.
