In your jail cell you found a mystical tome called the Book of Golam, which has the power to draw its reader in, make them experience what is inscribed within. You will play as a sorcerer to battle against monsters, but the magic you control is governed by arcane principles, great strength comes at a great price. There is magic that springs from the objects around you like wood or rock, also powerful magic that can be obtained through great sacrifice - part of your body or life-force. Keep using strong magic the price you have to pay in return will be immense, you may even cease to be human and become a monster.
