In this the fourth and final preview for The Grey Mage, we meet the Spellweaver cadre and their leader, Lord Saegras li’Aelsar.
As Liderial labours under a brutal occupation, the free remnants of the Eldara nation hold court in distant Aderial. Without a King, the Eldara look to the Spellweaver caste for leadership. The greatest and most influential Spellweaver of them all is Saegras li’Aelsar.
Saegras may be powerful, self-assured and convinced of Eldara exceptionalism, but he knows to acknowledge assistance when it is offered. An alliance with the Archmage Kelloccio put the resources of Qarld at Saegras’ disposal, a pact that would be vital when the time came to liberate Liderial.
Until then there were other pressing matters. Troubling news had come from the wild lands of Goriinchia, where a group of unaligned mages had taken possession of a Soldara ruin. Saegras and his fellow Spellweavers were alarmed by this development. There were Soldara secrets that could be dangerous in the wrong hands and when it turned out that these mages were led by Cassian, a known former pupil of the madman Rive, the situation became more serious. The Spellweavers journeyed to Goriinchia intending to remove these mages, one way or another.
