Through the ruins of a once proud empire and across a dying world travels Nhaqosa the Minotaur, seeking the long roads home. The lands that he and his followers tread are in the grip of drought and lawlessness, beset by bandits and monsters and seldom does he find a welcome. From the brutal gladiator pits to sinister crystal towers, death is ever present and survival hard won.
