The year is 2013 and you have found that which you were seeking. However, you have inadvertently placed yourself in harm's way and zombies are hunting you.

Alant's brother, Arderi Cor, has joined the ranks of the mysterious Tat'Sujen Order. He is elated with the newfound powers this secret order has awakened within him. Apprehension grips him, however....
