**Highest Ranking: #355 in Adventure 11/13/17**
One day when hunting, Diarmuid is captured by raiders. Knocked unconscious, he is brought across the sea and deposited on the wild shores of a country he has never seen. When the first chance of escape comes, he takes it, running for his life into a wild forest. Little does he know that the Coed y Brenin forest is not what it seems...
Deep within the heart of the dark woods lies a ruinous castle in whose highest tower lies the body of a sleeping princess. In order to win back his freedom and return home, he must resurrect the aforesaid maiden. But to do that, he must first reach the castle itself...
Many dangerous obstacles lie between Diarmuid and his goal. Either he will remain lost and die in the expansive wilderness of the enchanted forest or he will arrive at the castle. But even then, it is not as easy as it seems...
Join Diarmuid as he battles against dragons, faeries, and other beasts of legend. Will he ever reach his destination and fulfill his quest or will he perish on the way?
