The city of Ismia is in peril once again. Twenty years have passed since the great Demon Siege nearly brought the city to its knees. Now new dangers have emerged that threaten to destroy Ismia once and for all! A dragon has awoken in the Daggerspine Mountains, and is sating her terrible hunger on the villages of the north. A necromancer has risen a dark tower in Nara, to the east, and a scourge of the walking dead now plague the countryside. And amidst all this, rumors swirl that the Usurper King is once again rallying the forces of Anmarch to destroy the city of Ismia once and for all!
Many would-be saviors have answered the call to action. Powerful warriors, clever wizards, pious priests and cunning rogues rally to the defense of the city they call home.
Heroes of Ismia is an adventure game in which the players become Heroes in a fantastical world of magic and monsters. Each Hero is tasked with an Epic Quest, which they must complete to achieve their destiny and win the game.
The Wraithmire Marsh has always been a place of fear and nightmares, haunted by spectres, wraiths and terrible beasts. None dare venture into its depths but the bravest adventurers and even fewer return from the twisted, fettid bog. Those who have tell tales of a many-headed serpent, impossible to slay, for as one head is severed two spring forth in its place. For years such tales had been taken as fanciful stories from washed-up heroes. Then the beast emerged from the swamp and destroyed an entire village. Now the peasants plead for a hero to rid the countryside of the menace.
-The Beast of Wraithmire Epic Quest
