It's 1749, and darkness is falling upon the English countryside. Dark Main has despatched his Spectres and their Shadow Forces to conquer the race of Man. The Light is in danger of disappearing. By fate one evening in March, William Richard Jesson, barely survives an assassination attempt by The Shadow Guard. Wounded, he goes to his friend, a Moor named Maruk. He tells William, "You have been chosen by The Ancients. They have commanded The Wizard of The Forge to call you forth to come to him so that he may train you as The Light Bearer. You, my young friend, must undertake the Quest for The Light!" Maruk also gives William a new name, Travellor, noting, "Even the knowledge of your true name could bring harm and possibly death to those around you and those you meet." Diamond, a warrior princess, and Yung-Ling, a Korean assassin, join Travellor in his dangerous quest. Helped by the organization, Panthera Tigris, they journey to Morocco in their search for The Cave of the Light. In this eighteenth-century tale of magic and heroes, a man called Travellor and his companions struggle to defeat The Shadow Forces and save Man's civilization.
