Six months things were going well: he made friends with the local lord, discovered a nice little shop, the villagers loved him, he found a keen young apprentice to help him out, and he met a beautiful widow with the most gorgeous eyes. The bunch are bent on a crusade to take out all of mankind. That was just the good news. Their leader, who is a vengeful and mysterious force of dark magic and hate, is going right to Boval valley.
The spellmonger and the nice people of Boval just have a single choice, to hunker down in the huge Boval Castle and hope they will be able to endure a siege against these hundreds of thousands. The people look to Minalan for hope, and he does his best, but there are many goblins. They want Boval Vale to use as a staging ground for an invasion of the entire Five Duchies, and Minalan is all that stands in their way.
There is also a jealous rival mage, a liege lord with a delusion that victory is in hand despite hordes at the door, a motley group of mercenaries, a pregnant girlfriend and a catty ex-girlfriend whose specialty is sex magic. All of whom are trapped inside a besieged and stinking castle.
There is no hope of rescue inside, and it will be soon obvious why Minalan would rather take his chances with the goblins. The Goblin Invasion has begun and a wizard has never completed his work.
