HaroldGarret lives in Valiostr, part of Siala, a land of humans, orcs, goblins, gnomes, dwarves, elves, demons, werewolves, and vampires. (All the top wizards agree that vampires are strictly myth.) Despite his refusal to join the Thieves’ Guild, Garret has a sterling reputation, which gains him a commission to seek the One True Ringlegendary Rainbow Horn to defeat the top threat to the land, known as the Nameless One, once and all for all. Along with a mixed company (all with pretty mixed motives, as well), Garret sets off on a journey full of suspense and surprises.
