Mantic Games have posted a preview of the first issue of The Mantic Journal. There is also a PDF download with several pages from the magazine available.
From their website:
Mhorgoth’s mighty army of skeleton warriors marches from the south, out of the desert eating the lands of the Southern Kindreds, heading unerringly to the ruined city of Borath Lei.
Borath Lei is sacred to the Elves. In ages gone, the city was cast down. Its shattered walls stand in the wastes, faint traces of Elven magic holding the ever-hungry desert at bay, an oasis of sorts. Under the soft grasses before its ruined gates lie the bones of ten thousand Elven warriors, intermingled with those who slew them. Mhorgoth intends to raise these dead, creating a horde so vast surely all the Southern Elven Kindreds will be destroyed.
Corpse-ghouls pour from sand-choked catacombs to join his banner. High above, the dread vampire Lord Malak of Dol Eragos flies upon his Hellsteed, his alliance with Mhorgoth born of some unspeakable pact.
The Elves are on the move, determined to prevent this atrocity. Malatheer, Castellan of Aloss, has ridden to the Twilight Glades in the north to beg aid of the Mage-Queen while his twin sister Malatheen heads toward Borath Lei. Tydarion, the greatest of all Dragonlords, rides the wind to the south, while the High Marshall treads the Dark Path through the spirit world, hoping to reach Borath Lei before Mhorgoth can perform his sorcery.
Armies march. The stage is set for Mhorgoth’s Revenge…
