The following text is taken from a description by Wizards of the Coast:

'Bareris Anskuld, who reunited with Tammith just long enough to fall in love again before she was brutally destroyed, sacrificed his life to help the zulkirs and their army escape, leaving the kingdom of Thay in Szass Tam's cold, dead hands. He was punished for his sacrifice with undeath. In search of revenge, Bareris runs across Szass Tam's darkest secret, a secret that brings him all the way from the wilds of Thay to the exiled zulkirs with a plea they dare not ignore: return to fight Szass Tam, or the world ends.

The world held its breath once the civil war ended, and Szass Tam closed his iron fist around Thay -- but Thay remained quiet, desolate, and crawling with undead. Instead of conquering neighboring kingdoms, Szass Tam began building using his amassed armies to build strange fortresses around the borders of his land. Years passed, and the world let out a collective sigh of relief. But Szass Tam has more in mind than architecture. Szass Tam has a vision -- a vision of a perfect world, a world without sin . . . a world in his image.'
