When gods give a mission to jump, mortals jump. Powerful sorcerer Alastar receives a visit from the Under Lord himself. He travels to a different side of the world and brings along Bricabrac, a lesser able man. Desperate in their lust for power, the two sorcerers hunt anyone who has even a smallest magical implement.
We won't join their journey. Or will we? The Goddess of the West gives her envoys new tasks. Soliang brings his learnings to the mountain monasteries. The monk's magical powers are passed to his most devoted student, who leads the sacred quest.
It is the end where all journeys meet.
