All I had wanted was a place to live. That's it. But now, through my own lies and arrogance, I've found myself in a situation that I surely can't survive.
Everyone thinks I'm the legendary hero of some prophecy, and it's all my fault. Curse my lucky stars. Now I'm at the fortress of Dark Lord Demonix, as the captain of a party of the kingdom's greatest adventurers, and they seriously expect me to lead them to victory. My only chance at survival is to somehow infiltrate the fortress and defeat the Dark Lord.
But that's not possible for an average human like me. It can't be.
I'm gonna die.
