Aseo, a poor tarnished wretch, finds himself thrown into Limgrave – naked, penniless, hopeless and without a maiden. His only hope in his tough and unforgiving new home is a mysterious woman named Melina. She urges him to follow Grace’s counsel to the Erdtree that hovers over the Midlands. But it won’t be an easy road; a cast of colorful characters await Aseo along the way – Patches the Untethered, Blaidd the Half-Wolf, Margit the Fell Omen, Godrick the Grefted, and of course, Ranni the Witch… With little but a loincloth between Aseo and certain death , he embarks on the first step of his quest: Stormveil Castle. Will he make it or will his journey end before it even begins?
