The Beginning

After a frantic chase under the full moon, seven dark knights catch up to the most famous renegade of their Order, the man who has sworn to destroy them. But against all odds, they will not attempt to kill him tonight; instead, they came to talk. One of his former comrades urges him to accept a mysterious offer…
Yet there's nothing innocent about them, for the Orders of dark knights are the real power in the shadows, « the hand that rules behind the thrones ».

28 days later, a dark knight crosses the South pass that leads to the kingdom of Quicksilver. He goes down into the large sunken valley, and enters the walled city. But suddenly the belfry strikes twelve, and all bystanders, men, women and children, freeze in the main street…
The hour of the dead has chimed.  

A countdown begins...
