Our Adventure Begins...
The evil warlock Grimgrax is terrorizing the land.
In the small village of Quarryville, not one, not two, not three, but four intrepid heroes have gathered to stop him. (Well, three of them have, but let's not dwell on that fourth one just yet.)
Each person has their own reasons for wanting to fight the warlock and they don't want anyone else to interfere. Can the four of them set aside their feelings and co-operate long enough to stop Grimgrax or will the evil warlock win the day?
