The worlds are changing. In a world far from our own, where magic and myth are one in the same, a declaration of war is announced. The announcement sets in motion a chain of events that tear into the very fabric of time and space. An ancient legacy has returned to the magical world of Ivane, which had been thought long extinct. Since anyone can remember, there have always been two lines of magic. The first is the essence of the Sorceress. It has been ten years since the last reincarnation of the Sorceress, ten years since very her essence has poisoned an undeserving woman. But suddenly, it has returned. Now, to fight off the evil, three heroes are called upon to help vanquish the essence for good. Legend tells of the one who can manage this seemingly impossible feat. The one who can achieve this is graced with the essence's lighter equivalent, the Summoner. Alizé Dominio, a beautiful, gifted young mage from the Alinta Aces; Gogora's only army joins forces with Eddy Seamer. Eddy is a tough but loveable bladesman, and they are joined by one of their mentors, Keryn Blackhart, a patriotic perfectionist who cannot be beaten with a rifle. Together, they embark on a quest that pans the wondrous world they have all grown up in. Only the Summoner can call forth the ancient sceptre of the Gods. This ancient artefact is said to hold the power to vanquish the Summoner's evil counterpart and restore peace, if only for a while. But something is different this time around and deep in Alizé's heart a horrible truth is beginning to emerge . . . In old times, a prophecy was made. It spoke of the two ancient lines of magic and how they once belonged to the one who the people of Ivane consider God. It tells of the two lines of magic reuniting in one being, who will ultimately become a God among men. As Alizé and her friends reach their target, the heart wrenching truth is exposed. The true identity of the Sorceress is revealed, and the events that follow are truly catastrophic. When one inherits the essence of the Sorceress, their soul is twisted and corrupted beyond imagining. The darkness within becomes too strong and is unleashed, releasing chaos in its never-ending pursuit for power. It is a wicked burden to bear, and when Alizé inherits this unwanted gift, her soul is thrust into oblivion, and she emerges as the new goddess, forever thirsty for dominance. Now it is up to Alizé's boyfriend, Eddy, and his new friend Keryn to help Alizé. The only option seems bleak, and Eddy drowns in despair. But in a world where anything is possible, can there be a way to pull somebody back from the abyss? Do our heroes try and spit in the face of destiny? Or can destiny be changed? And if they do change destiny, then what?

Additionally, the Advanced Race Guide offers meaty sections on a dozen "spotlight" races that make interesting and exciting player character options, such as goblins, aasimar, tieflings, dhampyrs, drow, the elemental races from Bestiary 2, and several others, and, for the first time, allows players to create and play characters like merfolk, grippli, duergar, stryx, and every other appropriate monster currently in the Pathfinder game. Lastly, the Advanced Race Guide includes an extensive section that allows players and GMs to build their own custom races, either to emulate more powerful creatures that already exist in the game or to create wholly original characters unique to their campaign.
