Some people gather in their cities, seeking refuge from monsters and foes behind massive walls or solace from the scorching sun under the many-colored tarps of the bazaars.
Some people live their lives bent before the ziggurats tremoring in awe of their sacred rulers.
But not you, for you are an adventurer! Driven by an urge for power, by curiosity or avarice, you and your band of likes travel this world seeking fame, gold and adventure.
This is the game of these adventures.
