A mysterious body, known only as The Ruling Council of Acheton, has issued the following challenge to sentient life-forms everywhere:
"We herby challenge the greatest adventurers in the known universe to uncover the dread secrets of our realm.
"Acheton is no ordinary land. Although explorers are welcome, you may find that Death is the only reward. Deeds of heroic valour will be required, and feats of intellect that Newton and Einstein would have boggled at. Understanding the arcane science known as Magic will be mandatory...
"For the successful adventurer, the rewards will be great: riches immense, power supernatural, and the knowledge that you have succeeded where others have failed...
"Good luck - you will need it!"
Signed and sealed in the four thousand and twenty-seventh year of the reign of Yeikha-Oekkim IV. May his Dread Majesty live forever!
Kingdom of Hamil
A land of sorcery and romance; of strange but loyal beings; of immense fountains; of castles, and a museum filled with bizarre antiquities which only a King could put to use. A land where the powers of darkness always threaten; of ancient and unusual mazes, constructed by powerful wizards in bygone days, waiting to ensnare even the most ingenious explorer. A land of mysterious beasts eager to exterminate you if you stay in the same place too long. Where a mighty vampire haunts underground caves. Where creatures wait, in deep and dismal pits, ready to grab the unwary passer-by. Where ancient spirits in huge rolling cornfields serve long-forgotten deities. Where something is spoken about only in hushed tones, something known only as the 'snark'...
