Captain Dennis Hartraft is from the crack band of Kingdom raiders, Hartrafts Marauders, trained to fight behind enemy lines. They head towards a frontier garrison after being attacked by Tsurani soldiers. Meanwhile, a Tsurani patrol is sent to attack the same one.

They opt for the first option, and race together across the mostly uncharted Northlands towards freedom, pursued by Moredhel.
