The world of Drakensang
In this mystical world full of peril and wonder, long-forgotten, ancient creatures have started to re-emerge from the shadows of history. After witnessing the rise of humankind to dominance, their kind was pushed to the brink of extinction and forced into refuge. Their world crumbled and a new empire was born. Yet time has broken the order that was meant to last for an eternity. Dark minions have gathered their strength and unleashed humanity’s oldest foe: The dragon. Filled with wrath built up over two thousand years, they now wage war on the world. A new era is dawning and humanity desperately needs heroes to fight for the survival of their kind.
The road to Grimmagstone is older than the kingdom itself. Over two thousand years ago, as the empire began to take shape, a spellcaster of the first circle was buried deep in the earth, now marking this holy pilgrimage site.
The great Agathon himself blessed the spellcaster’s grave, granting passing pilgrims a vision of their fate.
This idyllic path leads to a sleepy village of peat-cutters and fishermen who carry on their traditions peacefully.
The source of their livelihood is the bog which has been recently plagued by strange creatures. Even pilgrims no longer dare take the pilgrim’s path north of the village.
Despite the presence of the old order, the village priests little suspect that something terrible has befallen Grimmagstone.
“Follow the path – there your destiny awaits.”
In the year 550, Heredur the great commander ordered the construction of his castle, thus severing the ties to the dying empire and crowning himself king of Duria.
Today in 1190, whispers of impending war flutter about the streets, behind the high walls of Kingshill.
While the king sits idly by, attending only to matches in the arena, a forgotten cult schemes in the shadows, and fear slowly begins to spread.
Prince Aldred, the kingdom’s last hope, hasn’t been sighted since entering the city’s catacombs. The priests remain persistently silent, denying what they know and fear.
“Are there no heroes? Or do the last heroes lie in eternal rest under Kingshill?”
