In the 17th-century, in an alternate universe, Mordred defeated King Arthur and founded an Empire, ably defended by the Order of Crown, Shield and Dragon. Last time, three knights of the Order were able to defeat an enemy with an arsenal of red swords, at a terrible cost. But, this time, courage and a sword may not be enough to save the Empire.
In the seventeenth century, in an alternate universe, Mordred defeated King Arthur - now known as "Arthur the Tyrant" - and founded an Empire, now ruling much of Europe, Asia, and the New World, ably defended by the Order of Crown, Shield and Dragon. These special agents carry swords, each containing the soul of someone of great power. Even in the hands of a knight of the Order, and wielded in the cause of righteousness, such a sword is terribly dangerous to its owner and all around him-a single red sword can defeat an ordinary army. Last time, three knights of the Order! were able to defeat an enemy with an arsenal of red swords, though at a terrible cost. But new menaces are threatening. An ancient witch, long thought to be dead, has returned, and the deadly creatures called darklings are infesting Europe. On the isle of Colonsay, another deadly supernatural being has appeared, sending the inhabitants into frenzies of murderous madness. This time, courage and a strong sword, even when armed with a sword of power, may not be enough to save the Empire.
