The Fyre is going out, the dragons are coming, and the hero wants nothing to do with it.
The Kingdom of Condel is blessed, and Gaernod is not. Eofyn is king, and Spyre most certainly isn’t.

It’s a long road ahead to save a kingdom he’s sure will hate him, and he’ll have to brave the many realms of Curnen to reach Condel and, regrettably, beyond to do it
