Asterion is the leader of a barbarian Tribe neighbour to the Kingdom. When young he rejoiced in war and searched for it all the time. Until he lost a brother in the battlefield during a war he caused against his brother judgement. He is now an old man who is tired of war and searching for peace with his neighbours.

He then reaches the kingdom and asks for a peace pact. To prove his intentions were good he asked the king to be sent with the party of heroes to defeat the dragon and recover the princess. As they were successful, the king signed the peace pact and Asterion gladly and peacefully returned to his land.

But he grew restless again and a dark thought started growing in his mind… he should take all from their neighbours, after all, he is strong, he deserves it. After a year of corruption he changed form and turned into a war-hungry minotaur. Now, as a monstrous leader, he rallied his men and beasts of war and broke the peace pact with the kingdom and is marching to it’s northern borders.

Sir Oliver gathered knights from the kingdom and is preparing for war! The noble warrior had really turned into a monster? A doubt is born in Sir Oliver’s mind “Do I have any chance against this massive man-beast and his army”?
