In the far off land of Altoris, surrounded on all sides by dense woods and foul smelling swamps, there lived a peace-loving people ruled by the good and gracious King Garath. Under constant attack from the Hobgoblins and Ghosts of the Swamp Land, it was only the power of the Golden Orb that kept the people safe. Now the Golden Orb has been stolen and darkness has descended over Altoris. The King summoned his only son, Zanok.
"Go forth my son and recover the Golden Orb that has kept us safe all these years" whispered the King. "Arm yourself well, for your journey will be fraught with danger. You will need all of your skill and cunning if you are to recover the Golden Orb and keep our people safe for evermore."
