The Voracious Resurgence

Raebrimm has left Bastok in search of answers.

His destination: the Galkan homeland of Zepwell Island.

An unexpected reunion deep within an ancient ruins leads to yet more questions.

And all at once, the gears of fate begin to grind.

“A mysterious mage on a quest to discover more about the World-Eater Egg. How is he connected to techniques forbidden by the Federation of Windurst.”
