Many eons from now, our Sun has dwindled to a cold red star. Soon it must flicker out... yet still men and women live, and love, and seek what adventure their strange world holds. And that is plenty – for on this ancient Earth the laws of physics weaken, and magic has returned to its own. Enchantment rules, from the Iron Mountains to the dreaming city of Kaiin.

Meet T'sais the sorceress, Turjan the scientist, and Liane the rogue. Journey with them through dim forests and ancient seabeds – across the mystical landscape of The Dying Earth.
