Wanted! A new hero for a new world.
The one peaceful land of Karazan is deeply troubled. Its king lies dead, the victim of an Orcish arrow; the evil wizard Darkmoon has stolen the king's crown and now the heir to the throne, Prince Goldhawk, has been poisoned.
YOU have been called to this troubled land by Marris the court magician. Your tak is to return the king's crown to Castle Karazan. Orlando, the Tin Pig, is your only travelling companion. Edge, the Sword, is your only weapon. Many will try to stop you, some may help you. But no matter who, or what, stands in your way you must succeed.
