Plot

Crusade Plot 1
 "Brannoc, Master of the Forge, said to be both powerful and wise, was the first and only leader of the Skylords installed by the gods. He had forbidden any to involve themselves in mortal struggles, instead ordering all to search for the missing gods.

History points to the irony that it was not Brannoc’s almighty gaze which found the missing gods’ trail, but the mortals of Lyr. The very same mortals who would have been dead, had all Skylords followed their leader’s command. And even now, creatures cursed with the Twilight taint surrounded them, attracted by the artefact they had discovered."

— The Aedai Chronicles

Brannoc found he had returned to his old home once more. The leader of the Skylords walked its borders, sad the building had been shattered by the giants. He stopped between two stone pillars which had marked the doorway. Between them little Viridya had played and Meanen, his beloved wife, had stood to call him to supper. He ran a hand down one of the columns, feeling rough that which had once been smooth.

His battle with the giants and his invention of Giantsbane, the black powder that fuelled the cannons, had made him Master of the Forge, first among the Skylords. But it had also cost him dearly; his home, his wife and in the end the love of his daughter. And to what end?

Brannoc’s gaze shifted to the skies; he had to find the gods! He was not alone in his quest, mortals had begun to search as well. Fools! What could their feeble senses hope to uncover? But there was something to them now, a stirring of power that would one day have to be investigated. For now though, more important tasks required his attention.

Crusade - Conclusion

Crusade Conclusion 1
 "The gods had found the fabled portal to the Sunbridge Shrine, one of the world’s most sacred places. Shrouded in magic to shield it from the greed of man and giant, its presence was hidden from even the Skylords.

Later it was clear the gods must have been horribly weakened, they had to walk to the hallowed ground and dig like mortals to unearth the portal. And the longer the Skylords followed the track of the gods, the more powerful the Twilight infection became."

— The Aedai Chronicles

The gods had walked, as if mere mortals. What terrible force lessened them so?

Their godly powers drained, they had dug this hallowed relic from the earth with their bare hands. The portal to the Sunbridge Shrine, where the fire of the sun and the flesh of the earth meet in divine union. The cradle of light, the world's most sacred place. It had been shrouded by Amii magic, to hide it from the giants. Brannoc already knew what the gods sought there. A terrible truth began to dawn within him.
