Inspired by the first D&D campaign I played…
When Viridiane, the young half-elf apothecary apprentice runs away from her small, quiet town in search of her mother in the woods, she’s hoping to get to know her elven lineage and finally embrace the magic she’s been forbidden to pursue. But instead of intriguing adventure and a loving embrace, she only finds death and destruction in the ruins of the once great City in the Forest.
Now she’s on the run with a thousand questions on her mind waiting to be answered. Where has her mother gone? What happened to her city and why did her father forbid Viridiane to visit it through all these years anyway? And what is the troubling, deadly power that, instead of the pure and majestic magical abilities she’s been waiting for, is slowly awakening in her?
