It is time for the final battle. The Dark Lord and his enemy clash on a field before Castle Darkstead. Landscape-altering spells are wrought, and one of the combatants realizes a lack of
preparedness for the fight: a forbidden spell is brought to bear and reality shifts.



Stuck in another world, Dark Lord Gustav has to find that which he has lost: his capacity for battle. But stuck in the middle of wherever, how can he ever hope to rise again? And what if the battle
isn't actually over yet?
