In the video game world, when the characters aren’t involved in the game, they lead normal lives. Some characters are more famous than others, but for the most part, everyone is middle class, trying to eke out a living.
Halcron the Dark is a Troll, who is the Big Boss on level 9 of his mining company, The Descent, where they mine for coin, and essence. It’s a pretty cushy job considering there are eight Big Bosses before him. But, he’s a tough as nails boss, even though he is a sweetheart of a dad. He dreams of advancement, to eventually become one of the final bosses, but he doesn’t have the fury. He needs to find the fury.
Halcron has a nice home in the suburbs. Grys Crylouder his wife, is a demon vampire, and their two kids, Sludge and Akrid a child from Grys’ first marriage, are their kids. Not to mention Halcron’s lazy, loser brother, Brogomir who does nothing but hangs out on the couch.
Meanwhile, it is rumored in the company that there will be a hostile takeover by none other, than the most famous adventurer, Vandilor the Bold. He has already taken over several companies that have been documented in such games as Vandilor the Hero. Vandilor the Deadly, Vandilor the Deadly Hero, Vandilor the Merciless, and Vandilor Cart.
It is very possible that everyone could lose their job if he succeeds. Upset and dismayed, he goes home to his wife Grys, she is making Halcron’s favourite dish to welcome the new neighbours moving in. Next door he meets up with Lily, and her daughter Lilac and son Trilby. When the man of the house is revealed, it’s Vandilor. He is arrogant, and bombastic, and loud.
The adventure that follows is how Halcron and Vandilor try to become friends even though Vandilor is trying to shut down his company and are both from different backgrounds, different professions and possibly different graphic quality.
