Welcome to Vareima, where Strangers from Earth walk the streets and Magic flows like water. Once a tropical world of nomadic denizens and frightening creatures, Vareima suffered a devastating cataclysm in its' distant past. The Gods repopulated it with some of the inhabitants of a half dozen other worlds. For this, the Gods are expelled for interfering in the natural affairs of Vareima. Those who have been relocated by the Gods are forced to coexist while the world recovers from the cataclysm. And so the eons passed, until the time of Surela and her adventure in Bakir's Helm.
The first Tale of Vareima, Bakir's Helm recounts the adventure of Surela, a 25 year old half-Human, half-Stone Elf. She is both heroine and thief, as she and Lim, a hand size reptilian grylam, and self-appointed guardian of Surela, cross the Sea of Ages desert to steal a fabled treasure. Hidden in the ancient city of Bakir's Helm, the treasure is guarded by three dreaded Hraks, vicious and mysterious warriors, never before defeated in battle. Surela and her 10,000 year old sword, Blue Bone, must battle to the death with the dreaded Hraks, if she and Lim are to escape the city with their prize!
