The fire burns warmly, but casts little light into Mentors study. The flickering shadows only hint at the vast number of books and scrolls that fill the many shelves. Slowly Mentor walks over to the fire.

Well my friends, your training is complete. You are not yet Heroes, you have yet to prove yourselves. But first, let me tell you of Morcar.....

Many centuries ago, Morcar was my apprentice. He worked hard and learned quickly. But impatience devoured him, and he wanted to learn more powerful magic. I told him of the dangers, and that he should be patient, for in time he would become a great Wizard. But Morcar could not wait, each night he broke into my study and read my spell books.

The secrets that were held within them were great indeed. Once he had learnt these secrets, Morcar fled. When I caught up with him, I found him greatly changed. He had pledged his allegiance to the Great Powers of Chaos. Fool. He saw magic only as a shortcut to to power and paid no heed to the terrible price he would have to pay.

I tried to reason with him, but to no avail. He laughed in my face and then unleashed a terrible spell that I was hard-pressed to counter. For many days we battled, but Morcar had allies stronger even than I, and I could not defeat him. In the end, as we both weakened, he fled and sought refuge in the Northern Chaos Wastes.

There he honed his skills, conjuring ancient powers with which to overthrow the Empire. But he knows not what he has done. They will serve him while it suits their own dark purposes. But in time they will destroy him. I must watch Morcar and measure the strength of this magic. This I may do with the help of Loretome.

The powers Morcar has called upon will destroy us all if I relax from this vigil. Morcar's legions have threatened us once before. Then it was Rogar who aided me and defeated them. Now they march again, already they have assailed the borderlands. The Empire must again look for heroes and to this end I have trained you.

Each of you must complete three tasks. If you do this, you will be acclaimed as Champions of the Realm and dubbed Imperial Knights. Only then will you be on the road to becoming a Hero. I shall speak with you again on your return. If you return.....
