Legacy of the Enchantor

Submitter: D'Arion
Description: For two centuries Rankor has thrived and prospered, climaxing into a Golden Age of knowledge that has lasted for nearly all of that century. They have even succeeded, through the science-magic of their world, in achieving panimmunity. In over a century, no enemy has threatened the Island State and her feudal fiefs on her homeland. But a new enemy has emerged from the depths of the ocean and the knowledge has been lost in the Long Peace on how to deal with it... all the Rankor citizens can do is fight it, and hope for the best, while the Professor-Magi search for the Ancient Rituals once used to combate these enemy from legend. The few Ritual's remembered all involve an obscure object or method call 'The Enchanment'. Some things shoudl never have been forgotten.
