It all begins with a short and dry whip crack in an isolated farming village.
The moment the young serf Ketill beholds the village chief forcing his little sister on the ground he snaps. One fit of rage later the ground is soaked red with blood and the small group of serfs is hunted by the Dragon Kingdom. Their only chance for survival is a new beginning in the nearby frontier mountains.
But what starts as a simple wooden cabin in a cave soon becomes shelter for the socially deprived and expelled. Confronted with new challenges Ketill decides to build a town in the mountains. A beacon of hope so bright that no kingdom should ever be able to force them on their knees again.
