Life had become ordinary for Rathen, and his glory days as former Captain in King Delvant's First Legion were just a part of his past. Rathen's life had become uneventful with the highlight of the day spent at the local tavern run by his best friend an ex-gladiator named Bulo.
That all changes when the powerful ruler of the land approaches Rathen seeking his help to defeat the evil menace growing at Ghrakus Castle. Rathen realizes this is just the adventure he needs, and he quickly recruits his friend Bulo. As Rathen builds a team of mages, fighters, clerics and a thief, he receives an ominous warning of betrayal.
As the group journeys toward their destination they begin to hear dire stories of magical creatures and now empty villages slaughtered by something powerful, but the stories do nothing to prepare them for the horrible reality and mysteries that await them.
The journey is bitter and the road is hard, but their greatest challenge yet awaits them when they arrive at Ghrakus castle. Nothing could have prepared them for the foes they will face. It will take everything the adventurers have to survive, let alone achieve victory and return home.
