Translated from the back of the book:
"The Vagabond must die
Dolguruk, the headsman of the city of Thalusa, is sharpening his blade again. This time a vagabond from Khunchom is said to be his victim. The young man's fate seems decided if you don't deliver the life-saving message. But will you reach Thalusa alive and advance to the city's sovereign?
Or will you too soon be facing Dolguruk?"
