The year is 640A.D., and a dark god is rising in the lands of the Maya Indians.
He is Camazotz', a god of the night whose plans for the Maya people include countless murders and endless sacrifices of innocent lives.
Opposed to his plans is K'awil, a god of the light. K'awil instructs his priest Blue-Green Stone to raise an adventuring party against Camazotz'.
Blue-Green Stone finds five foreigners who are willing to accept missions from the Mayan god, and The Six Shadows Adventuring Party is born.
The six of them will take on thieves, assassins, the evil dead, warlocks, supernatural warriors, and the guardians of both dark and light as they
gain in strength and prepare for the final confrontation with the god of the darkness--a confrontation in which there can be only one victor!
