"The youthful artist-swordsman Benvenuti Sfondrati-
Piccolomini arrived in the city of Goimr just in time for
disaster to strike. The evil sorcerer Zulkeh had driven
the King of the realm insane, then fled from the
city!" "So much for Benvenuti's plans to become the Royal
Artist." "Injury was added to insult when Benvenuti was
immediately arrested by the Secret Police. Then, after
barely managing to escape the clutches of the authorities,

civilization. Zulkeh and Shelyid had actually left Goimr
to discover the really important implications of the
dream, beyond the trifle of the dynasty's destruction.

the sorcerer were hopelessly intertwined. Soon, Benvenuti
and his two companions were off in pursuit of Zulkeh,
trying to save the entire sub-continent of Grotum from
conquest by the Ozarean Empire. Benvenuti was swept up in
a whirlwind of revolutionary plotting and perilous
wizardry as he traveled across the vast sub-continent. The
only certainty was that he was on a quest the end of which
he could not possibly fathom, accompanying a female
revolutionary whose beauty was only outdone by her
ferocity." It didn't help that he'd fallen in love with
her, especially since her brother's help would be vital to
the success of their enterprise. Gwendolyn's brother
Greyboar was the world's greatest professional strangler.
And they didn't call him the Thumbs of Eternity for
