"You are ROHAK, mighty barbarian from the northern wilderness.
"Seeking adventure, you travel far south to the city of Cazanth. Not to your liking, you find employment in a barber's shop. You become acquainted with a girl called Zlonia. Your friendship grows until one day she is kidnapped by the evil wizard, Trolez-hiar for his foul purposes. You decide to rescue her and here your adventure begins..."
You are Rohak, the mighty warrior. Skilled in the art of two-handed sword-fighting, you live with your tribe up in the Tesapor mountains. But, as life goes on, you get bored and decide to venture out, to look at the rest of the world of Yoram.
You set off and make your way past te deserts of Foras and hitch a lift on a sailing ship through the Straits of Asdon until you reach the city of Cazanth. Upon entering the city, you find an inn known as 'The Crossbox And Quarrel Tavern'. You stay there, working to pay the rent, as an assistant to a barber. You make good your stay for many a month.
During your stay, you meet a girl called Zlonia and you come to know her well. Then one day you hear bad news. Tholez-hiar, an evil wizard who has been kidnapping innocent girls in use in unholy murders to the foul God of Terror Grisor, has stolen Zlonia!
Upon hearing this ill-fated news, you decide to rescue her, but what clues do you have on her whereabouts? You sit down at a table and think. This is where YOU take over the position.
Find Zlonia and return with her to 'The Crossbow and Quarrel Tavern'! Rumour has it that Trolez-hiar has many friends out to kill you. Good luck on your mission!
