In the town of Norton, cash is king. However, not all residents are so fortunate. At the edge of town, right where civilization meets the unruly forest, lies a small orphanage.
Sherwood's Home for Children has been Robin's sanctuary since he was a kid. Now, as he enters his last year of highschool, and his last year at the orphanage, Robin realizes an ugly truth - only the wealthy survive. If Sherwood can't raise enough funds by the turn of the year, they face foreclosure... but not if Robin can stop it.
Pitted against a power-hungry politician and a corrupt sheriff, the odds are against him. Rob the rich to feed the poor. It's all or nothing now, and if Robin fails, he'll be branded a criminal and outcast forever. All he has is charisma, wits, and drive, but if he plays his hand right, that should be enough. After all, no adventure is without its dangers, and Robin has secrets of his own - secrets that will either save him, or condemn him.
