The heroes who brought home the gem are renowned in story and song, but for two fellows on the quest, peace and prosperity don't come easily.Apprentice Knight Kalanthe Ironheart wasn't meant for heroism so early in life, and while she has no intention of giving up the notoriety she's earned, reputation doesn't pay her bills.
