Edward Eastland and his friends Tag and Boric have gone in search of Covenenters Nomal and Rembert. Now all that was left was for the Rombuli army to retreat back to the defensible positions on the Alskar River. Grand Master Silker, the Commander of the army, had said when the plan was formulated, " We do not have enough trained soldiers to do anything about a direct attack on the enemy. With odds of something like twelve to one, we can do nothing ultimately to stop their advance. All we can do is hope that Nelvask and Latask can hold them up with their power at the Alskar River. The other thing we can do is leave some people behind their lines to harass their backs and hit their supply dumps. I have to admit it is not much of a strategy but it is the only one I can come up with at short notice. Desperate times call for desperate methods. I know it is a delaying tactic, hoping that something to help us will come up in the future. If I am honest with myself I can see little hope of it succeeding."
Deep down in their sub consciences Nelvask, Latask and Silker all know what is proposed is suicide but it is all that can be done until somebody leads a party to Parison to rescue the leader of the Covenent, Tulka. He has been imprisoned by the invading Black Elves. With his magic and the rest of the Covenent there has to be a chance in any confrontation with the Black Elves.
After their dispute with Edward Eastland, the elves of the Golden City stir in their forest hideaway with the plan of helping the humans in their fight.
The question on all the defenders of Rombulis' minds is who will lead this assault on Parison? Will it be an all out assault or a clandestine mission? Where, they ask, is Edward Eastland and if he returns will he be able to use his power in the rescue attempt to free Tulka?
The situation is desperate. The enemy appear to have more troops and stronger magic. Will Nelvask find Edward in time and will the elves of the Golden City really come to the aid of the humans?
