Dragons ruled the lands for many years using their dominance and power to ensure law, order and justice. They commanded respect and kept skirmishes and conflicts between the lesser races to modest levels. These mighty peacekeepers ensured the lands of Dragons Continent prospered with different races and cultures growing and developing admirably.
One day in the year 375 these magnificent beasts took to the sky with no warning or explanation and flew away, never to be seen again. Upon realising this, the lesser races began invading, warring and conquering each other with no fear of consequences with the dragons now gone. The humans, elves, dwarves and many more races now seek to take these lands for themselves and rule!
Hiroki Mitsue, a young swordsman and member of a brutal nomadic warrior clan known as the War Hogs, finds himself stuck in the middle of two warring royal families, murderous factions of wicked warlords and evil vampires around every corner. Having hatched a dragon egg and befriended the magnificent beast he must now also stand side by side with his sensei and leader of the War Hogs, the most feared swordsman known throughout the lands, the mighty Yoshihiro Hiroto!
Hiroki and Yoshihiro, as well as eight ferocious high-ranking commanders within the War Hogs, who are known as the ‘Cursed Bastards', now sense the world as they know it is moving towards a mass war, and with two evil kings about to descend upon them with giant armies and evil dragons, perhaps these nomadic warriors for hire may now need to use their might to restore peace and defend themselves from an evil far greater than ever imagined!
