Northern Europe, early sixteenth century. The Church is in turmoil, as corrupt leaders brutally suppress attempts at reform. The burning of heretics has become a public spectacle, while spies are ever watchful, searching for others to indict. And yet, most inhabitants of Mithrendia live within the comparative sanctity of the city’s fortified walls. Outside, lawlessness reigns upon the moors, and in the heights, rumors of Norse legends abound. Berserkers who assume werewolf form are combing the eastern forests. In the south, revenants known as the draugur dwell in the Myrkur range. Four modern-day college students are thrust through a time portal into this cauldron of Gothic portents. If they are to influence history, they must first survive.
