With Iron Heel The World Grinds Away
Plunge into worlds of fantastic adventure where dragons lie and the undead stalk the shades of your imagination, where creatures of legend plunder wealth through the horror of their passage. Monsters grim and foul hold the ecstasy of gold and the renown of glory. Upon the backs of these stalk heroes of great might; those who take up sword and shield, who harness eldritch might, those who stalk the narrow corridors in search of sport and those who serve a purpose greater than all the others. Heroes. Freebooters. Mercenaries. Adventurers.
