Long ago, the Kingdom of Manatalopia stretched far across the Sirenian Desert. Life in the empire was good, just, and beautiful… Without warning, a devastating force of legend, the Goblin Horde, marched on the Kingdom of Manatalopia. The barbaric Horde showed no mercy. The brave Manatalopian Knights took up arms to defend the vast empire, but the attack was too sudden, the Horde too powerful. At the hands of the merciless Horde, the empire was swiftly destroyed. Driven into the borderlands of their once great empire, the surviving Manatalopian Knights devised an ambitious plan to retake the lost kingdom and mete out justice on the Horde by moving their remaining fortress onto the back of the mythical Burdenbeast. The result: the Roaming Fortress. So begins the campaigns of the Manatalopian Knights to reclaim the lost kingdom and drive the evil forces back from whence they came.
