We could begin this story by speaking of a vast world, in a dark age, where the innocent were threatened by frightening creatures. This is how epic adventures usually start. We would continue that a white knight, fleur-de-lis in his chest and sword in his hand, was this land's only hope.
Our protagonist's name is Eshur, who has been, for much of his life, a simple blacksmith. Beginning as an apprentice, he worked for years making swords for the brave knights of the kingdom of Dysarlyn. Then, one day, he left his work begind in search of adventure. And he found it... After he crossed the deserts of Dysarlyn, he found that the people of the westlands had been zombified.
Eshur retreated to a misty forest, where he encountered Aganzia, an old sorceress who explained to him that the zombies were the army of Delcram, an evil sorcerer. He planned to use them as his army to conquer the world. But Delcram, she explained, could be defeated, and the people could be returned to their previous selves. All that was needed was for Eshur to steal "the orb of kishá"; this was the source of all Delcram's power. Eshur created a mighty sword for himself and battled through Delcram's hordes. In the event, he not only managed to steal the orb but also to destroy it, breaking Delcram's hold over the people. Delcram fled, and Eshur returned to his previous life satisfied that he had done at least some good.
Ten years have passed since then. But today, taking everyone by surprise, Delcram has returned; this time directly to the eastlands where Eshur lives and works. There is only one thing for it - retrieve the mighty sword and, this time, impale Delcram with it.
