A Talespin adventure by Rudyard Heaton.
When the great war was finally over in the land of Kabar, all tried to forget Sulphres' betrayal for the sake of the long awaited peace...However, one stood up to curse the new Lord and prophesied a terrible disease on his land...Now it seems that the dark times have arrived. Although Sulphres has long been dead and his great grandson, Domino, is on the throne, all of Kabar is suffering from a strange deforming disease...The only cure is reputed to be the Holy Grail, fount of all good, which, according to the legend, can only be approached by a pure soul...
This is where our tail begins: Accompanied by his companion and servant Billot, a wizard of great powers has set out to save the land. For this, he will have to brave many dangers, from the creatures infesting the dark forests to the plague itself at the heart of Domino's castle, and endure many tests, from the temptation of giving up, to the ultimate ordeal: the projection into the world of essences, where good and evil are physical beings...
