Simple woods guide Richard Cypher lives in Westland, an area cordoned off from magic by a mystical boundary cast by wizards. One day, while out in the woods alone, he meets Khalan Amnell, a beautiful woman with magical powers who is being chased by armed men bent on murdering her. She is the Mother Confessor and has the power to make people tell the truth and the target of an assassination. Together, the pair turns to Richard's Uncle Zed for help. The trio discovers an evil plot by Darken Rahl, the ruler of D'Hara, which is across the continent from Westland. They embark on a journey to confront Rahl and free the people from his evil plot of world domination. Along the way, it is discovered that Uncle Zed is really a wizard in disguise and Richard has a magical aptitude of his own. Richard is the Seeker, born to divine truth and fight for it with the Sword of Truth. The trio and assorted friends go on to fight Rahl's regime throughout the world.
