[Prologue]


    Near the end of a medieval world-war, a lone kingdom remains unconquered by a villainous empire. The empire is strong; with much of its goal of world domination now complete, and a capital city with walls of an irregularly impenetrable material, its final conquest poses little threat. This last kingdom knows its only chance at survival is to strike at the heart of the empire; to take the capital city and claim leadership of its power. In desperation, they turn to ancient legend: that of dragonsbane, a substance that burns hotter than dragonfire. With it they can breach the wall to the empire’s capital city, sending in assassins to eliminate those who would most resist supplantation. None living know of dragonsbane as anything other than myth, so a single knight is tasked with confronting the last known dragon for information about the final hope for the kingdom.
