In the world of Allwyn, humans are almost extinct. A war among the gods has led to the downfall of humanity and the banishment of their god. A thousand years later, the remaining humans eke out an existence on the fringes of the vast dwarven empire.

In one such settlement known as the Cradle of the Gods, a young man named Ghile is preparing for Rite of Attrition, used by the dwarves to seek out potential vessels for their insane god's return. Meanwhile, Almoriz the Sorcerer and his apprentice Riff arrive in Ghile's village for one of their annual visits, beginning a series of events that will change Ghile's life forever. He is marked as the Stonechosen, and wields powers of the gods themselves.
But Ghile is not alone. Others chosen to fulfill the prophecy are also traveling to the Cradle to seek out and destroy him. The time of the Stonechosen has come.
