Fight your way out of this mess!
You and your wife live in a peaceful and yet meaningless little village that is currently dominated by Dragonkin. And when you are about
to think that you will probably die out of boredom, an over enthusiastic spy informs the emperor himself, that somehow YOU are a dangerous rebel and a threat to his majesty,
planning to free the empire from the corruption and violence caused by the emperor and his vile men.
Afraid that you'll kill his sorry ass, he sends his men to capture you and your wife. They succeed and you end up in one of the prison cells of the emperor, alone, not knowing where
your wife is. Many times you wished she would disappear, but you got attached to her and somehow you are missing her. You decide that the last thing you will do is NOT rot away in this
terrible place, where you are forced to fight other prisoners to the death in the gladiator arena.
You brew up a plan. A daring plan… You may not survive it, but staying here locked up is not an option. Fight your way out of this mess, find your wife and restore the world from this
