The land of Kilforth is a perilous domain filled with nefarious monsters, mysterious Strangers and treacherous locations. Dominating its centre lies The Sprawl, a huge city where intrepid Heroes begin their journey to fame and fortune. Throughout the land various factions vie for power over each other, such as the supposedly noble Order of the Rose, and the terrifying Doom Guard. Presiding over the world outside Kilforth is the ever-present Overlord, Masklaw. Over the coming month, a deadly Gloom will descend upon Kilforth, which the Heroes must battle through to prove their worth, defeat an Ancient evil, and save the land from darkness.
