In the far north of the world was a range of freezing mountains called the ''Ice Mountains of Okal''.

They were very high mountains, with extremely low temperatures that no one dared to climb, also there were no stories of anything of value there.

Close to the mountain range however was a very big town, Regin as it was known, was a very busy town because of the adventurers that were there.

What happened was that the region, also because of the nearby mountains, offered many different kinds of jobs for adventurers.

For example, there were several caves in this region, where besides having monsters, there were precious stones for trade, so it was quite common for merchants and companies from neighboring towns to hire adventurers to go into the caves and collect the precious materials.

Because of the adventurers' presence, a tavern guild was built, where all the warriors gathered, ate, formed teams, got jobs, etc.

Some companies, instead of sending their own adventurers, preferred to contact the local government, which offered the work in the guild.

During the years a city around the guild was gradually built, until it reached a good size, today the population of the city easily exceeds the 200,000 mark, most of them absolute adventurers, moreover the city of Regin has become a mandatory stop for merchants in the region.

One of these many adventurers was Enrel, a red haired boy who had been an adventurer in Regin for two years, his family had always had famous adventurers, and he also wanted to make a name for himself in the city.

His father unfortunately had to retire from being one after he lost one of his legs on a mission he did years ago, his mother was a healer and gave up adventuring after her husband lost his leg.

Enrel's parents now ran a store that made custom equipment for adventurers.

Enrel was outspoken and well-known in town for being the son of the famous swordsman Hekel, but he was only outspoken because he was his son.

He wanted to engrave his name in history.

Enrel entered the guilla on that cold morning, because of the nearby mountains, the city was always under snow and low temperatures, there were only a few times a year when the ice thawed and you could see some grass in the area.
