Players first start in large farming communities but soon discover there is so much more than anyone had imagined. They discover they are in a large vehicle, one of three, called Arks traveling through something called space. They begin by defeating a metal man and moving on an area called the cavsfchoas and clearing out the monsters as "heroes" are supposed to do. Along the way they are sent by a technomage to rescue a Star Traveler from suspended animation so she is not captured by the Fiends. Shortly after that an enormous section of something called Greyhawk is unfrozen . . .
