The magical kingdom of Anavrin is separated from the outside world by a veil. When the queen gives birth, the king's sister goes to the sacred well to fill the Dragon Chalice with water as part of a ceremony. She overhears a man crying for help on the other side of the veil so she crosses leaving the sacred cup on her side. She takes the injured man across the veil. Later when she learns that her brother will kill the outsider, she helps him cross back to the mortal side only to learn he stole the chalice and brought it with him. The chalice bursts into light and the four stones are dispatched.
