In the land of Thea in the country of Castille lies a quiet coastal town called Montonen. Ah, but it is quiet no longer! It is under attack by outside forces who wish to destroy the only thing worth fighting for in a world of adventure, sorcery, and intrigue such as this. Why, is there anything more worthy of fighting for than love itself?

Roman! Bishop! Silva! Pastora! Dirk! Geraldo! Machado! Francesco! Jose! Anna-Henrietta! Everyone's invited to the final episode! En garde!

The Inquisition! Nobody suspected that THEY would be the bandits. Why raid a caravan? What awaits our heroes in the town of Montonen? At least we got a new fancy hat out of the mix.
