Otto Shenk is the youngest son of a minor baron.
He's also a wizard.
Abused by his family and considered less than human by his kingdom, Otto does his best to survive.
But everything changes when Otto stumbles across a tower hidden deep in a dark part of the forest near his home.
A tower that was once the home of an Arcane Lord, the immortal wizards that long ago ruled the world.
Otto's life will be changed forever.
And so will the world.
