One of the Mysterious places since the dawn of this world is the Labyrinth, a maze like area packed with death and monsters.
Occasionally they grant those who dare to enter them the opportunity for wealth and fame, but mostly they deal death. Sad, awful, lonely, ignominious death.
Death in these Labyrinths can come in many forms. Poison water, electrified walls, confusion panels, monsters, black passages where light cannot penetrate and even exceptional hearing cannot help - failure is the status quo, given the challenges.
Those that brave these mysterious places are called Adventures, and as one might expect given the long odds, they are in increasingly short supply or rather, they were.
Schools have been created with the express purpose of cultivating the best of the best to replenish their ranks with the bravest and brightest.
This year, another bright and energetic group of youths will walk through the doors of those schools, learning the tools of the trade, the art of the blade, and skills or magic that will enable them to graduate as the next Class of Heroes.
