Summary :

In an enchanted world of kings and wizards, young squire Eudoric Dambertson has reached his 23rd year--and like young men are wont to do, Eudoric has fallen in love with a fair maiden. He courts Lusina, daughter of Baron Emmerhard, but Eudoric has no means to purchase Lusina's hand in marriage, and the 13 years of peace in the land offer him no means to improve his station as a knight. The shrewd Eudoric strikes an arrangement with the enchanter Baldonius for his magical assistance in acquiring the object of his desires, and to complete his part of the bargain, Eudoric embarks on a journey eastward across the mountains and valleys to the lands of Pathenia and Pantorozia. It is in these regions, sayeth Baldonius, that dragons still roam in the Motolian Forest, and the enchanter much desires two square yards of dragon hide for his magics and potions.
