Creators: Semerciyan, S
Abstract: On the outskirts of a country a war rages on and on, while at its centre a proud king rules the capital with an iron fist. Once upon a time it was foretold that his daughter would marry a common soldier, so the king has locked her in an impenetrable tower. Nobody has ever seen her in the flesh. When a disillusioned soldier returns from the war and comes into possession of a magical tinderbox that can grant him anything he wants, the storm clouds begin to gather. A story of blood, magic, violence and love.
