About the Game
Author: Allen Barrett
Deep in the mystical realm of Thader, an evil sorcerer has released his dark and demonic minions from the Underworld and upon the citizens. The sorcerer is Bakar the Black, a corrupted and dark fiend who was banished from the soverign Undergard for performing necromancy and black magic, used to keep himself immortal. For centuries, he has terrorized the people of Thader. He has claimed most of the Southern part of the land, and has converted or destroyed everything that once was true and good there. The land quickly fell into poverty as Bakar's evil forces raided farms and cities and villages for food and wealth. The rulers of the allied countries did all they could to defeat Bakar and restore Thader to its original beauty. However, Bakar was too strong for them. Horatio VI, King of Undergard, had to watch as his country was invaded by demons and the forces of evil. Crime became rife throughout the small towns and backlands. Thugs roamed the roads between towns to rob innocent people. Unrest was increasing all the time. Guerilla forces and mercenaries from all over Thader joined King Horatio’s soldiers, but sometimes they overstepped their boundaries and raided innocent villages. Horatio was about to give up until the leaders of the Great Guilds pleaded to the Thadarian Alliance to let them contribute. Horatio and the other leaders allowed this. They let the Guilds take their champions of fighting and magic and join them together. They formed the Great Guild of SpellSwords.
