"The city of Skara Brae suffers under the terror-reign of the evil archmage Mangar. To make things worse, Mangar laid a spell of eternal winter over the city, preventing anyone to come in or go out. It's up to you, a band of adventurers, to find and defeat Mangar in order to return Skara Brae back to peace."
