Guided by the mysterious radio host Alan Graves, they must follow the clues to a terrifying secret before it eats them alive.

On the other hand, Caedmon's quests leads him to protect the source of the knights' power. If Caedmon wants to graduate — and save the realms from certain disaster — he'll have to betray Ellie, forcing him to choose what matters most to him: knighthood or friendship.
