Welcome to Magbriggan, city of demons! The curtains open as Baxter Crixus –an 18th century English nobleman imprisoned in Magbriggan after making a deal with a demon to win a duel — fights for his life in the demons “human fighting arena”. Among the crowd a pair of long lost twins cheer for opposing sides. In Baxters corner is Sic Cofactum the well respected alderman of the documented district. Rooting against Baxter is Banerthal Say, an ill tempered humor smuggler who wants nothing more than to escape the city.
