PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
A graphically brilliant entry into the RPG genre, from the creators of the award-winning Descent and FreeSpace series, Summoner crafts a unique look and complex story set in an original fantasy setting. Summoners have toppled empires and challenged gods. They are venerated as saviors and feared as destroyers. With rings crafted by the ancient Khosani, the gifted can call forth demons, dragons, and elementals, but only the strongest can control the forces they unleash.
