While recovering Bray is contacted by Andoo Toran, the Wizard of Waysley who carries a dire warning, the end of the world is coming in the form of a demon army. Bray must take his rightful place as the King of Nadia so that the North Lake cities, all related to Nadia in some way, will fight along with South Lake cities and everyone else against the Destroyer.

Death seems to follow Ran wherever he goes and this time is not different. After losing another friend he decides to travel alone and to stay away from people, so he heads north for the top of the world.
