Before the dawn of Renaissance, the world was consumed by the epic struggle between the Islamic
Empire of the Ottomans and the Christian Kingdoms of Eastern Europe. Two momentous events
marked the raging war: the Fall of Constantinople, and the Conquest of Hungary.
The year is 1448.
Transylvania and Wallachia are about to be invaded by an army of Sultan Murad II, who calls himself
The Shadow of Allah upon the World. Lorian Comosicus, heir of a mysterious Draconic ring, and his
younger brother, Silvan, traverse the border mountains with the ill news that the Ottomans placed Vlad
Dracul on the throne of Wallachia. Lost in the vast forests of Transylvania, they meet Sir Gregor Dahr
Altair, an imperial knight and a powerful member of a secret fraternity sworn to defend the Realm of
Hungary. Together they rush to warn the great trading city of Hermannstadt of the incoming tempest.
