ACT I

Bryunce Hogic is chased into the Absolutist's village and rescued from certain death by Janus Prude. When it's discovered that Bryunce has amnesia from the ordeal, Janus is compelled to leave his life behind him in order to help Bryunce return home.

ACT II

Janus and Bryunce are ambushed and imprisoned by the Monarchists. While Bryunce is escorted to king's chamber, he learns that he's to be the king's supper and that there's a conspiracy to overthrow the cannibalistic monarch. Bryunce murders the king, and much to his dismay, is rewarded with the crown. With the help of his former inmate, the Thin, White, Old Man, Bryunce spurns his new sovereignty, and with the Thin, White Old Man and Janus, leaves the Monarchists to find his homeland and an heir to rule the Monarchists in his stead.

ACT III

The Thin, White, Old Man leads Janus and Bryunce to his friend, the Emperor. The Emperor relays his fear of losing his throne to a young, orphaned gladiator. With the help of the three, the Emperor hatches a plan to trick the gladiator into taking the Monarchist's crown instead of his own. But when the gladiator is reunited with his lost love, the intrigants must take extraordinary measures to secure their interests and seat the gladiator on the Monarchist's throne.

ACT IV

Janus and Bryunce come across a Crusader encampment where they are welcomed as compatriots, but when it's discovered that Bryunce is an unbeliever, he's taken to a nun for conversion. After a less than holy recantation of his wicked ways, Bryunce is reunited with Janus and they journey into the desert.

ACT V

Janus and Bryunce are found by bandits who are from Bryunce's homeland, and in order to return home, they must infiltrate a Nationalist's stronghold and take back the bandit's ship. They're successful and all seems right until they return to Janus's home and are confronted by a devious plot that makes their former perils seem tame.
