Spock and Sulu are swept into a savage power struggle on a primitive, beautiful world!

Contents

Introduction (blurb)

Angira is a primitive, violent planet - and young Prince Vikram returns from Earth filled with new ideas.

When Sulu and Spock accompany Vikram home, they walk into a bloodbath: reactionary forces, afraid of any modernization, have seized Vikram's rightul throne.

Suddenly, the men from the Enterprise are on an underground journey with a prince who is coming of age. The future of Angira is at stake, and each man's survival depends on his skill - and daring - with a sword!

Summary

The Enterprise has been assigned to escort Vikram, a minor member of the Angiran royal family who has been being educated in the Federation, back to his home planet. Spock and Sulu accompany Vikram to the planet to provide them with astronomical information while the Enterprise continues on to deliver medical supplies to Beta Carinae.

When they arrive, the trio discover that the emperor's plans for modernisation have caused widespread discontent: many of the population are forced to work in dangerous factories, there is wide scale pollution and the new taxes have left many on the verge of starvation. Lord Rahu, an old rival of Vikram, stages a coup, wiping out most of the royal family and leaving Vikram as heir apparent, but Spock, Sulu and Vikram manage to escape the palace in the company of Umri, the niece of Vikram's servant Bibil who is killed aiding their escape.

The group makes for Umri's home village of Guh but Spock is wounded in an attack by bandits led by the disinherited Lord Tayu. When the villagers attempt to hold them prisoner, resentful of the emperor, the others are forced to leave Spock behind with Umri's grandfather Pagu. The pair are then captured by Lord Bhima, a swordmaster and former mentor of Vikram who has reluctantly agreed to serve Rahu.

Sulu, Vikram and Umri reach Vikram's family's fortress at Kotah and, despite the Council of Elders trying to hold on to power for themselves, Vikram is able to convince the people to fight for him and form an army. They engage Rahu's forces and manage to wipe out his swordsmen with volley fire, with Sulu briefly taking charge of the field when Vikram is knocked unconscious. With his army in flight, Rahu attempts to escape by holding Spock and Pagu hostage. Vikram challenges him to a duel instead but Rahu instructs Bhima to fight in his place and Vikram mortally wounds him with a trick he learnt from Sulu. Rahu orders his remaining follower to kill Vikram but Bhima takes the arrow instead and Rahu is killed by Vikram's men.

Later, having convinced Starfleet that their actions did not violate the Prime Directive, Spock and Sulu return to the Enterprise leaving behind Federation advisers to help Vikram and Urmi arrange a fair modernisation of the planet.

Origins of the Shadow Lord

The Shadow Lord

A decade before the Crystal War, the three nations of Vana'diel launched an expedition to investigate civilizations. The expedition included Ulrich, a powerful Hume swordsman, his friend Raogrimm, the Galkan Talekeeper and keeper of the race's memories, and Cornelia, a beautiful Hume female warrior.

The expedition through the Northlands was going as planned until a rift began forming between Ulrich and Raogrimm. The Galka was advocating peace with the Beastmen, a thought Ulrich didn't agree with. Also, Raogrimm had proven to be the better warrior of the two, despite Ulrich's prowess with his blade. Then there was Cornelia; the Hume female and the Galka had developed a secret affection for one another, and Ulrich was green with envy.

The day finally came when Ulrich could no longer control his jealousy. The Hume surprised Raogrimm, pulling his sword and moving to kill him. Cornelia, faithful to the end, stepped in front of Ulrich's blade and Ulrich ran her through. Raogrimm took Cornelia's dead body in his arms and let out a mighty roar as the pain of losing the one he loved washed over him.

Ulrich hid the truth of what happened when he returned home from his expedition. The rage and sadness of the betrayal, however, resonated through the world and into the memory of the Magicite Crystals.

Thirty years after the event, as you find pieces of Magicite Crystals hidden throughout Vana'diel, you catch the first glimpses of the horrid betrayal: the event which ignited Raogrimm's hatred and allowed him to resurrect himself as the Shadow Lord.

Emergence of the Shadow Lord

Twenty years before the dawn of the Age of Adventurers, a terrifying demon emerged from the frozen heights of Xarcabard. Nobody knew where this demon came from, and none of the nations were prepared for his wrath. This kindred demon united the beastmen of Vana'diel against the five races of Altana in a war referred to nowadays as the Crystal War, or the Great War of 20 years ago.

This demon was called the Shadow Lord.

At the conclusion of the Crystal War, an elite squad of warriors fought through Castle Zvahl Baileys and cornered the Shadow Lord in his throne room. There the mighty demon was defeated... or so the world thought.

In the the Age of Adventurers, the dark spirit of the Shadow Lord began to stir once more. Motivated by this great force, the beastmen of Vana'diel set in motion a plot to revive their revered leader. Before this plot could envelop the world in a second Great War, a young adventurer joined forces with veterans of the original war to foil the sinister plot. In the end, the Shadow Lord did rise again, but the adventurer was there waiting. An epic battle ensued, and at the end of the battle only the adventurer is left standing.

The Shadow Lord then reveals his true identity: he is Raogrimm, the former Galka Talekeeper consumed by the torment and pain of generations of his people.

In this final defeat, the Shadow Lord believes he can rest peacefully.

Defeating the Shadow Lord will grant the player the rare Rank 6.
