From the back of the book
In the bay city of Zoa, two deadly thieves' guilds war over territory, striking against each other with threats, competition and swift, brutal acts of violence. You are one such thief – a young member of the Shadowed Fist guild, and enemy of the Black Blades.
Fortunately, although you are still a mere cutpurse working your way up the ranks, your brother holds a position of leadership within the Fist, and it is at least partly due to him that you have survived and prospered as well as you have. Suddenly, after completing a routine assignment, you find your brother struck down without warning by an assassin's poisoned blade! As he lies near death, you must seek out the antidote to the poison, restore your brother to health, and revenge yourself upon his attackers.
Yes, your brother's survival and the survival of everyone involved, as well as the conclusion of the adventure, rests upon your shoulders! Fortunately, if you take the wrong path, you can always play again. Even after you complete a game, feel free to try again because this book has more than one ending! Some endings are good, and some endings are bad. If you come to a bad end, simply play again from the beginning!
