Skugg Kragson could have been hored in his clan. A hero who broke a cycle of starvation. He would have had a beautiful wife. He could have been War Chief, High Shaman, or both. But that life is taken from him. He is without home, without clan, without hor, and in less than a month he will turn into a monster, governed by the darkest urges of the deepest pits of his soul, beholden to a Demonic master from the nightmare realm beyond this one. And it's his own damn fault. Stupid bear. With time against him, demons without and demons within, Skugg flees his mountain home and cuts a path of mayhem across the Empire of Tangonia, facing mercenaries, monsters, strange machines and his own most-hated inner turmoil. He has one impossible goal in his heart - to find the source of his curse, and BREAK it into itty bitty pieces.
