The history books of Gallowmere tell of a hero, Sir Dan Fortesque,who single-handedly halted an invasion by the zombie hoardes of the evil Zarok.

"then came twisted sorcerer Zarok"

Though Sir Dan boasted of his adventures, slaying dragons and vanquishing marauding armies, in truth the only action he'd seen was in his dreams. Unfortunately for him, King Peregrin was impressed by his tales and appointed him head of the Royal Battalion. But as Gallowmere hadn't seen a single war in centuries there was no need for Sir Dan to worry.

"But then came Zarok!"

A bitter and twisted sorcerer, Zarok had long been plotting against King Peregrin, and had assembled an army of zombies to attack Gallowmere. Sir Dan was fatally wounded in the first few seconds of the battle, having been shot in the eye by an arrow. And though Zarok's undead sodiers were completely destroyed, Zarok himself mysteriously disappeared.

Embarrassed by Sir Dan's poor show, but realising his subjects needed a hero, King Peregrin declared that Sir Dan had died in mortal combat with Zarok, seconds after killing the villainous wizard. A tomb was erected to Dan, his name etched into the Roll of Honour in the Royal Hall of Heroes.

But now, 100 years later, Zarok has returned – and now he wants revenge! Using the satanic power of necromancy, Zarok has enslaved the people of Gallowmere and resurrected the dead turning them all into his obedient zombie slaves.

Only one soul remains free from his control – that of Sir Dan Fortesque. Now, Dan must make amends for his failures in life, and unshackle Gallowmere from Zarok's grasp.

"He's gonna need all the help he can get if he's to succeed..."
"Zarok has returned now he wants revenge!"
"The history books lied!"
"the satanic power of necromancy!"
