There was a time when all the inhabitants of Wesnoth knew the name of Argan, the servant of Ragan, and passed his story among them from fathers to sons.
However, despite the habits of Alduin's wizards of digging up and recording every notable historical event, the story of the beginning of his baffling rise remained unknown and marred until Elynia, his heroic wife - and then his greatest enemy -, decided to risk publishing some passages from his diaries that he wrote to overcome the amnesia that afflicts those who wander between dimensional gates or Shassangoth the Immortal.
This is a story of Argan, who the light of his great accomplishments, and his heroic followers, lit up the skies of the realm of Irdya just as the darkness of his black robe threatened every living being and nearly destroyed all hope of escaping from his might.
The story of the rise of a hero among heroes and a monster among monsters...
