There has been absolute peace in the kingdom of Pentawa for over a year. Since peace is what everyone supposedly desires, one might assume that this would make the people happy, and perhaps most of them are, but the Sorcerian adventurers of Pentawa are bored. They spend their days in a kind of dull sameness, and wish something -- anything -- would happen to bring some excitement into their lives.

Meanwhile, in the nearby kingdom of Azoruba, things are far from peaceful. Stories have begun to reach Pentawa of the kidnapping of Princess Serina, and of the great epidemic which swept the kingdom when she disappeared. They tell of a king controlled by the great dragon Vadis, and helpless citizens who have been turned into beasts. They tell of the need for heroes to reverse the awful fall of Azoruba by returning the lost princess and vanquishing the vile dragon that controls the mind of their king.

Pentawa City begins to come alive, as parties of adventurers prepare for a long journey and a fierce battle.


A fiendish dragon has taken over the mind of the king of Azoruba. Many Azoruban citizens have disappeared from their homes. Now Princess Serina has been kidnapped, and with her absence, the city has fallen to a terrible epidemic.

Before Azoruba can know peace again, the princess must be returned to her people, the dragon Vadis destroyed, and the mind of the king restored.
