Three thousand years have passed, years in which the once beautiful land has been all but destroyed. For three thousand years nothing has been heard of The Mysterious Stranger but now on a dark, wet and windy night he returns. To you, a descendent of the 'Singer of the Song'. You, a mere child, still flush with the vigour of youth. You who have done nothing remotely heroic in all of your seventeen years. The Stranger tells you that when the Black Wanderer sowed the seed of The Unborn One, so too did he sow another seed.....the one which would lie
dormant until the time was ripe for it to burst forth. As the seed lay dormant, however, it matured and then mutated. It divided and became many and called itself LEGION though it was more than just one being. It was many, it was Legion and through its numbers it would gather strength. The multi-faceted evil then spawned upon the land, but it spawned far to the east, far beyond the Eagleshorn, in the unknown reaches of the place known as the Saddest Lands.
The Mysterious Stranger tells you that although the Silent Song has been lost, it too has mutated. It has mutated within YOU.... into something more than what it was. But he cannot tell you what. That is for you and you alone to discover. He leads you to the giant bird Sebac, who is to carry you over the Eagleshorn to the realm of Legion and there he bids you farewell.
