The Powerful Wizards of Chattatook

Truth is the source of all power. It is the foundation from which all exist. Since lies are the absence of truth, power does not exist, without the presence of truth.

But there are those, who have the power to change evil in this world. Our story begins, in the sleepy land of Chattatook.
