(from the back of the book)
Each year there is the traditional meeting of acrobats and jugglers in the city of Khunchom. The heroes can attend this festival, try some artistics themselves or indulge in music, dance, sweet wine and love. But then sad news darken the mood. A wagon of acrobats has gone missing, devoured by a red mist that crept down from the Gor Desert. People talk of demons and finally of Borbarad, their terrible master.
No wonder that nobody volunteers to search for the missing acrobats. Nobody? Or do you know some heroes which are brave enough to fight the terrors of the Gor Desert?
