Nearly twenty years after leaving the Great Pulha Woodlands and making first contact with the human civilizations of this world, Acer finds the consequences of his actions catching up with him. The incident that forced him to leave the kingdom of Ludoria has brought a half-elf child into the world. Traditionally, such children were disposed of, but at Acer’s request, the child is spared—on the condition that Acer himself takes responsibility for it. He eagerly embraces his new role as a foster father, and while raising a child means he must put his days of carefree wandering behind him for a time, there’s still plenty of world out there for the two of them to explore. But before they go too far, Acer has some old friends he’d like his newly adopted son to meet!
