Thousand of years ago, six demon kings, known as the Revenants, ruled the world with an iron fist and bloody swords. Their powers let them claim the bodies of mortal vassals and live in the realms of man forever. The great hero and warlock Harbinger was the only one who could stand up to their power. One by one he hunted the Revenants, taking their souls and casting them into the Well of Souls. But the Revenants survived... As a young man you will travel to meet your uncle in the town of Madrigal. Here, your destiny draws you into the path that Harbinger trod--to confront the Revenants and banish their souls back to the well forever. Your travel will take you far from Madrigal--to the ruined kingdoms of Horath and the ancient empire of Thardolin and through the lost city of Talendrah. You will brave searing desert and icy plains. You will have to seek answers among the living and the dead. You must confront the mightiest of the Revenants--the demonic Skorn--in his citadel of Galdon Thor, and drag him and his kin from the world of man. You must succeed where Harbinger did not. You must become the Soulbringer.
