Discover to the land of Carrock where magic and technology coexist; and yet it is so much more! Here is a culture that reflects German, French, English, and ancient Celtic cultures, with some elements of the American wild west thrown in.

The Land of Carrock is in disarray!

The young lord, Dylan, has vanished and Alick the Wizard has seized the throne. His mercenaries terrorize the people. Peasants are enslaved and sold for Alick's enrichment. The Gentry who stand against Alick are mercilessly persecuted. Transformed into a wolf by his nemesis, Dylan á Carrock watches from the shadows, unable to rescue his lands until he finds the key to his disenchantment, which is held by a mysterious Scholar. Dylan seeks help from his beloved Tabea and her cousin Stev, a traveling merchant, but time is running out as Dylan's human mind battles against his animal instincts. If he does not hurry, the Wolf will overwhelm him and all hope for Carrock will be lost.
