Founded no more than 100 years ago, Asberg remains a small city with a population of about 5,000. The Order of the Shield is a mercenary army which acts as the city guard, providing protection for the inhabitants. To the north lies the Blackwood Forest.
Recently, a string of gruesome murders has plagued the city. The perpetrator, who goes by the name of Doctor C , is still at large. He was last sighted fleeing the city guards, whom abandoned their pursuit as he entered the Blackwood Forest.
