Walter is an 18-year old who wants to start his life...away from his father's blacksmith shop.
When he travels to Bavaria, he walks right in the middle of a war. Barbarians have been ravaging the kingdom, and the King is desperate. The people of Bavaria believe that Walter is their rescuer from the savage barbarians, due to a prophecy from four decades ago. Walter, of course, is confused, but he had come seeking adventure, and had definitely found it.
