The lost heir to the kingdom of Saradyn has come forth, but without protection, he will surely fall prey to the deadly temptations of Lady Eliza Farrow, a vampire and the rival claimant to the kingdom. Only the swords of Terrinoth’s heroes can protect the heir and lead him safely to his rightful throne!

You’ve been tasked with defending a caravan of monks, but it seems that someone else found them first. A young boy stands motionless on the path with a bloody dagger in one hand. “Goblin ambush! The others are wounded,” he yells, pointing further on. You pull him into cover as a wave of primitive arrows hisses through the air, but he wrests free. “The goblins will run if you kill their dogs. Come on,” he shouts and runs toward the caravan, rolling and weaving to avoid the continuous spray of arrows.

QuestsEdit

All quests award every player with 1 XP each, regardless of the outcome. This reward is omitted from the table below. Rather "1 XP" means an additional XP.

The "Rewards" columns indicate the additional rewards those players earn in case they win. If a reward says "(optional)", it may be awarded or not independently of who wins. If a reward says "(always)", it is awarded to the player regardless of who wins.
