Protect the Innocent. Punish the Guilty.

Seth the Ice Lion, now an Apprentice in the Jalora Legion, reluctantly travels aboard ship with his new battalion. Western Beta’s mission seems a dull assignment. Guarding miles of bogs and old ruins should be a simple task, but Seth soon learns nothing is easy for the Bearer of the Lion Ring. The Jalora is the embodiment of Good and the source of Seth’s power. It commands he search North Marsh for a relic capable of saving his homeland from the ravenous appetite of the Jackal invaders. Surrounded by deadly bogs and savage beasts, he must find the relic before the Lion Spirit inside of him takes control of their shared body.

Invaders from across the sea hold a firm grip on Valdeon, but their thirst for blood remains unsated. They lust for the riches of Andara. Using fear and greed as weapons, the Jackal enlist aid from the continent’s unscrupulous mercenaries to prepare for a larger invasion. They build a stronghold – Stone Fang Fortress - in the Bloodtooth Mountains of the north. It is here they prepare to conquer the free world.

Will Seth find this powerful relic before the Jackal swarm invades Andara? Or will his people be enslaved under the iron fist of the Jackal Lord? Seth’s answers hide in the deadly bogs of North Marsh…

Seth wrapped his powers about himself and flew at the Changeling with all the speed he possessed. A fist struck his torso, knocking the breath out of him. Such speed! The Lion rolled to the edge of the battlement, smacking painfully against the barrier overlooking the Legion courtyard. Stunned, he didn’t have time to block the sharp stab to his right shoulder.

“How disappointed your Jalora must be right now.” The Changeling swung its blade playfully in the space between them. “Your career as bearer will be a short one.”

Primal fear and hatred rose within Seth’s heart as he stared into the mystical being’s black orbs. The Lion’s Roar rumbled low in his throat. Gasping in short, panicked breaths, Seth desperately tried to concentrate. The Lion Spirit laughed at his struggles. Its vast power chipped away at the thin layer of control Seth still held.

Let me out, Bearer. The Lion Spirit growled. I grow hungry for its flesh.

“No! You’ll destroy more than the Changeling.”

You will soon learn, boy, I cannot be contained.

Then the beast was loose. Bursting onto the battlements in a massive wave of destruction, it struck the Changeling with a bone-crushing surge of energy. Laughter boomed in Seth’s ears as the Lion Spirit fed. Slashing and chomping, the invisible beast delighted in the frenzy. Its destructive force, now free upon the outpost, didn’t stop at the enemy’s ruined body. Thundering along the battlements, the Lion’s Roar shook the foundations.

Seth, a stranger in his own body, sat helpless on the battlements while the Lion Spirit devoured everything in its path. Flesh. Stone. Metal. It ate indiscriminately. Seth scratched his fingertips along the rock, trying to regain control. The Lion Spirit, however, wasn’t ready quite yet to return to the confines of the ring. Seth prayed an outpost would still be standing when at last its hunger had been sated.
