What’s left of the Demon King’s castle…
The human race attacking the Demon King’s castle is nothing new and has happened countless times before. What makes this time different though, is that the Adventurers decided to join forces with the Imperial Army and the ‘Hero of Caerleon’ to finally succeed in the total destruction of the Demon stronghold. All of the demons in the castle were taken prisoner except for one lone skeleton named ‘Skul’.
Skul, a member of the Demon’s Guard
Skul is no ordinary skeleton. In addition to his formidable fighting skills, he can gain new and exciting abilities depending on which skull he’s wearing.Use up to 2 skulls at a time, each of which has its own unique attack range, speed and power. So choose ones that match your playing style and switch them in the heat of battle to bring your enemies to their knees. The power is in your hands!
Skul has crossed paths with a party of Adventurers! They are powerful foes that hunt Demons for sport. But while Skul may be small, he still packs quite a punch. So just see who really is the hunter and who is the hunted….
