2010 (Original game background): The hinterlands beyond Ket are known to be riddled with the ruins of a bygone age. While the nearest and best known vaults have been long since been pillaged, merchants and fighting-men yet curse the undiscovered dungeons that harbor goblins, brigands, and other monsters that infest the surrounds. If something isn't done, they complain, trade routes across the hinterlands may have to be closed altogether.

Despite the ever-present danger, the ruins attract a steady trickle of scholars and adventurers to Ket, whose activities continue to stir a growing sense of anticipation.
