A new and sinister threat looms over the Middle Kingdoms. The borders protected by the fierce Knights of the King are no longer secure. The fearsome orc clans, more numerous than ever, prowl all the roads. The proud nomadic people of the steppes are on the lookout, for strange beasts lurk in the darkness. Not even the sturdy dwarves, hidden in their subterranean palaces, seem safe from the threat – from the unknown tunnels of its mines, a filthy army of hideous creatures advances inexorably.

Chaos grips the world. Only the memory of the oldest recalls the exploits of a hero and a few warriors, who in other times fought against the forces of Chaos. Ianna, the mother of all living things, gave the hero a mighty sword to enter the abyss and defeat evil. But it happened a long time ago. A new hero is needed, a chosen one worthy to wield the sword and destroy the enemy…this time forever.
