Orilin and Larilyn Alandiron live peacefully on a cattle farm in west Sargna. In the spring, they plan to make their annual pilgrimage to the Holy City of Al-Nartha where the Eternal Flame of Telbyrin is housed; a Flame that has existed since the foundation of the world. All the peoples of Telbyrin venerate it as the symbol of all creation’s prayers that go up to the Creator. All except the dreaded Meldron; a race hidden within the Mountains of Black with a supposed secret knowledge of dread power.
While Orilin and Larilyn think this is just another annual pilgrimage, they discover that the Flame is going out. Suddenly these two peaceable Elves get caught up in a journey of discovery of why the Flame of Telbyrin is going out and who or what may be behind it.
