The Nightmare Begins Again...
A year ago the denizens of Thanalan were terrorized by the escaped creation of the mad goldsmith Madaru Dadaru. The Aetherial Personality Engine slew his master, then began a campaign of terror against all those who would enslave his clockwork brothers. Roving bands of mammets more advanced than any ever seen before sewed chaos and destruction across the desert until finally, in a climactic showdown outside of Horizon, three adventurers brought an end to the APE's revolution in a catastrophic battle.
But now the gears begin to turn once more. Ambitious goldsmiths hungry for secrets scour Madaru Dadaru's work. New technologies bring forth new crimes. And in the depths of an ancient tomb, the ghost in the machine still thrives.
