Description

Dragons are bad enough, but now the sky is falling!
Elves at war, dwarven spies, and a secret goblin invasion... from the creators of Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance.

The Volcano City of Karakto is home of the morehl: the red-skinned lava elves. The blue-skinned coral elves, known as the selumari, believe the morehl corrupted and mad -- driven to violence by the god of Death. Decades ago, the selumari conquered Karakto with the help of their dwarven allies, the vagha. Now, the coral elves live in an uneasy truce with their hated enemies and rule over the spoils of war.

Can the morehl be redeemed? Calantha, the city's selumari governor adopted a morehl child, hoping to prove that nurture can overcome nature. But that child, Orric, has grown into a capricious rogue, brilliant and witty, but prone to danger and rage.

As tensions grow in Karakto, secret armies move, and voices whisper of a coup. Perhaps the morehl are not as evil as Orric was told, and perhaps neither are the selumari and vagha as good as claimed. With the lava elves looking to Orric to lead them, Calantha struggles to hold their brittle alliance together in the winds of rebellion... and a new and dangerous evil brews with an omen in the sky.

Series order note: The Tales of the First Age books take place long before the Relic Quests and Cyrean Songs books; they are a series of stand-alone prequel tales.
Originally published in 1996, Cast of Fate was the first book published in the world of Esfah, a gaming universe set in TSR's award-winning Dragon Dice game system. Cast of Fate was intended to kick off another universe alongside Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance. Instead, TSR was purchased the following year by WotC and its assets sold. Dragon Dice is still very much alive and celebrating its 25th anniversary with reviving this literary universe, The Esfah Sagas!

Also included are the original stories Tome of the Tarvanehl (which includes three short stories) and Heart of Stone and Flame. These books were originally published in 1995 (just prior to Cast of Fate) and only available from TSR with the purchase of specific Dragon Dice products, but are now available in this single volume! (Also the new short: Thunderfist and the Dragon).
