Description
An epic musical of accidental heroism. The chorus of gods set out to relate the tale of the Great Ulmar, legendary warrior and champion of Sollistis.

What follows proves a challenge even to such seasoned storytellers as the gods themselves as they vainly attempt to re-write history with only the help of Orvin, the unlikeliest, most reluctant of last-minute replacement champions.
