Great heroes have spent lifetimes questing for fame, glory and riches... some have done well, but have any ever found "The Greatest Treasure in the World?"
Sir Sebastion of Scot is the realm's most acclaimed knight. He has found glory a thousand times but has never had time for love. Until one day, the arrow of fate strikes true when he meets and falls in love with Karrinna, a poor, beautiful maiden facing a grim, lonely future because she demands that anyone seeking her hand must first bring her "The Greatest Treasure in the World"... a lost, magical treasure that may only exist in her dreams. Throughout history, many have searched for this special, elusive treasure with some claiming that they had found it... the others, eventually failing, or even dying, during their quest.
Sebastion hopelessly courts her with wealthy gifts, promises, and song, but... though she loves him, Karrinna will not marry him unless he finds and brings her the treasure. Encased within a special chest, is an object made of the purest gold that is magically enchanted with the most powerful force in creation. The treasure also possesses an unimaginable secret! Bewildered by Karrinna's demand, but bewitched by her heart, Sebastion quests forth to find this legendary treasure, or die trying on love's fickle battlefield.
A quest that will take Sebastion into dangerous lands, testing his skills against trolls, brigands, a feisty, one-eyed dwarf named Thorgrim Longbeard, a ruined dungeon, powerful storms, earthquakes, and more.
He must summon all of his knightly courage and climb a treacherous, icy mountain of unknown heights to visit the 'all-knowing, most-wise Oracle' who will help only in exchange for a deadly sacrifice! He will have to face the heart-freezing horror of a master vampire's undead army, and then confront the ultimate evil when he enters the purgatorial lair of the giant red dragon, 'Luminex,' who will roast him alive if he cannot solve her impossible riddle!
But to even ...
