"So this is it", bemoaned Tyche, "Here I am, imprisoned by Moosh, with my people in slavery, when all I wanted was to promote goodwill between our two worlds...". Moosh didn't take kindly to Tyche's offers of peace and a bridge for trade between their worlds, and so destroyed the bridge, and in a final daring move kidnapped Tyche before returning to his own world and throwing him in jail. A better bridge, so much more secure than its predecessor, now spans the worlds allowing his henchmen to carry the minerals, oils and precious gems back from Tyche's once free lands, with the citizens enslaved to toil for Moosh's greed.
But the resistance is growing, and if only their leader was back amongst them they could start to fight against the tyranny. And so - with his trusty staff smuggled into the prison - Tyche has escaped his captors and must start to make the journey home...
