“Good intentions aren’t enough.”
My name is Amber, and I am Asura.
I was a member of a prestigious golem krewe, working toward goals of exploration and scientific discovery, but that life came to an end when my lab was raided. Now, I have been forced to reach back into my past for the skills to help me fight the Inquest, who destroyed the tranquillity I’d created for myself – and who want to destroy a whole lot more.
I want answers, I want to protect my stolen research, and I want to save my people from the dark shadow of the Inquest’s ambition. And, just possibly, I might seek a little revenge along the way.
Amber, a former thief, has put her past behind to focus on a life as a researcher in a golem krewe. However, when Inquest attack her lab, she is set on a new path: to hunt down the asura who stole her master’s research, and make sure they pay for their crimes.
On the advice of a new ally, Amber sets her sights on Brisban Wildlands, where she hopes both to learn more about the Inquest, and run her foe to ground.
With Amber’s enemies in hiding, she is persuaded to head east to Ascalon, to aid the research of her new charr allies. However, with new weapons and old grievances coming to the fore, her journey is anything but easy.
A fresh sighting of her enemy has Amber on the road again, but in Kryta it soon becomes clear that Inquest aren’t the only trouble she’ll have to deal with – and that’s before she counts her travelling companions, all of whom have secrets of their own.
Things with Amber’s companions haven’t gone smoothly and now she’s on the run – and whilst help might have arrived in the shape of an old friend, that doesn’t mean things are going to get any easier.
