A hero must rise. A chosen hero.

But who’s chosen hero?

A new terror has arisen in the puppet kingdom of Strand: a Blood Beast that keeps to the shadows – striking without warning and killing without mercy.

A young bard, Bravo, sings to warn the people of their peril. But they heed him not. A proud wizard, Grouse, casts his spells to try and end the threat. But the beast eludes him.

And so it is decreed that Burke Bloodborne – the chosen hero of Strand – must be summoned. Yet a hundred years have passed since even a rumor was heard of Burke.

Is he still alive? Where did he go? Did he ever exist at all?
