A young, idealistic writer attempts various esoteric practices - including astral projection - in a journey of self discovery and as research for his novel. As he manages to leave his very body, an odd sense of displacment possesses him and he wakes up in the recently deceased shell of a young warrior on another planet within another dimension. Little did he know that this energetic rift that hijacked his astral body was a reccuring interdimensional event that transports lower astral creatures and so called "lost souls" to possess and resurrect the fallen in the otherwise utopic world of Spyra. A cataclysmic event that happens every 700 years to rinse the universe of useless energy such as lost souls. The Symarian necromancers, guardians of the dead, mistake you for the messiah sent to end this catastrophic reccurence once and for all. Will you find the means that grant you passage back to your own body? What secrets will the land of Symaria, the desert nation of Spyra, hold for you.
