The Dagger of Deliverance


Thousands of years ago arch demon Thrlaâ (Philipp Weimann) arose out of the throats of the Nine Hells. From that time on he walked around in Mistledale, which he transformed from an idyllic place into a darkness covered woodland. Abominable creatures – known as rattles – stalk through the woods of this desecrated place, searching for unsuspecting travelers to hunt, cut into pieces while they are still living and finally use for their cannibalic meals.

This is the region the gold-crazed half-elf tradesman Ellefdriel D’Indoulur (Jan Wienforth) wants to cross to bring an old artefact, an antique dagger that seems to have magical power of some kind, to the next town where he is able to sell it. His first attempt is a desaster and ends in a cruel and brutal bloodbath during which the rattles take possession of the dagger. But neither they nor Ellefdriel know about the power of this insignificant piece of prcious metal; and nobody knows of the danger this dagger means to their and Thrlaâ's sovereign of power in the Mistle Dale.

For the second attempt, however, the half-elf has recruited a group of four mercenaries: The battle-hardened, slightly choleric barbarian Targor (Mark Witzke), a habitual whispering but bold thief, Milf (Christof Naegel), a deformed gnome magician named Guz (Timon Weimann), and finally the neither heroic nor mysterious cleric Clerance (Henk Petrik). Escorted by this group Ellefdriel starts his second expedition into the dark Mistle Dale, but it is unknown yet who is going to survive Thrlaâ's and his horrible servants' welcome...
