In an enchanted land, there is a mysterious lake. This land is Mnar, and once upon a time, on the banks of this strange lake, were the cities of Sarnath and Ib. But Sarnath and Ib are no more...The story of their passage into memory and history is one of prejudice, hatred, and wrath. Of xenophobic, over-zealous fervour, of Eldritch magics, and the harsh ways of strange gods. This is the story of the doom that came to Sarnath.
