The Devil's Grasp
A thousand years ago, a mad wizard ensorcelled five gemstones, giving them the power to call forth and control the demons that haunt Hell itself. After a blood-filled battle with the mercenaries who helped him in his bid for power, the wizard was defeated and the stones were spread across the continent, hidden from all but legend and bard's tale. Now, the kingdom of Tsinel threatens the tenuous peace with Albathia. King Theomann, ruler of Albathia, sets his oldest son upon a quest with his Elite Troop of soldiers to find the stones. As they soon discover they are not the only ones searching for the stones. Unbeknownst to everyone, King Theomann's youngest son, Daedalus, has designs for power, aligning himself with the blood-thirsty leader of The Horde, a band of vile fiends razing town after town in the kingdom.
A band of ne'er-do-well thieves. A pack of insidious trolls. A group of wizards with dubious intent. All searching for the stones for their own purposes, none prepared for the power that the stones possess.
The power to control Hell will be held by one hand. Whose will it be?

The leaders of the Wizards' Guild have been investigating a different disappearance -- someone has been finding and gathering the twelve World Builders, ancient tools of power that can reshape entire worlds. One item remains unfound, The Eternity Seed, and a small group of wizards have been partnered with the king's Elite Troop of soldiers to find it along with the identity of the one responsible for stealing the other World Builders.
In an act of desperation, one of the wizards seeks help from those instrumental in ending the Demon War a decade ago, but they now wish for a simpler life. Those who escaped The Devil's Grasp must band together to discover and stop this new threat,
