The cries of the oppressed echo throughout the land and fade to distant whispers in the wind, unheard and unheeded. In a land where dying in bed is the greatest luxury a good man can hope for, mankind faces a horrifying future of despair as a creature of pure evil and hatred proclaims himself a God and crusades to conquer and enslave the world.
The fabled heroes of the land are either dead or beaten, the last of them retreating into hiding rather than face death at the hands of pure unabated evil.
As Kings cower in castles, afraid to face the coming dawn a new hero comes in this time of great need. She shines as a light in the darkness, a beacon of hope rallying the last vestiges of mankind’s strength to buckle their armor, forge their shields, and once again raise their swords high.
Her name is Talon, an impossibly courageous warrior as dangerous as she is beautiful. Her legend spreads as a whisper on the tongues of the oppressed, growing ever louder as it is retold from village to shire. The song of Talon will be sung far and wide, and justice will come to the rich and poor alike.
