From the Background:
Ambushed and captured! The Dark Elves fell upon you in the dead of night, whilst you slumbered beside your campfire. Subdued and bound, your colleagues murdered, you're marched off a prisoner. You were warned at the last settlement that travelling the Plain of Bronze was dangerous!
After being roughly handled by your captors along grassy tracks for days, you're led into a cold, damp, underground labyrinth of tunnels. Locked in a wooden stock, you're left in a small cave to ponder your fate. Silently, you curse your bad luck!
The days turn to weeks in your miserable prison. Occasionally, a cruel Dark Elf comes to feed you stale bread and torment you with a whip. He gloats that you're now owned by the fell Dark Elf Witch Aaula. Your destiny; to be a slave in her subterranean silver mines for the rest of your days!
Once he's gone, you're filled with a fierce determination to escape. Repeatedly testing your strength against your bonds, you're able to break free after days of hard effort. All your possessions are lost; but they didn't find the dagger secreted in your boot!
Seizing a burning torch from the wall and brandishing your weapon, you cautiously leave by the only gloomy tunnel. Your mission; to escape these hellish mines or die in the attempt...
