Cross the terrifying Swamps of Desolation, penetrate the Forest of Gloom and make your way around the Howling Mountain… If you’re not lost or simply dying of fright, you’ve probably got a chance of reaching the famous “Dragon Slayers’ Academy”. There you will meet young WIGLAF, along with his friends… young apprentice knights thrown into a Middle Ages of zany and quirky legends.
The day that Wiglaf decided to enroll at such a prestigious school as “The Dragon Slayers’ Academy”, the celebrated DSA, he had no idea what was waiting for him. And, one this is sure: no one has ever succeeded in slaying the slightest Dragon over there… No one has ever learnt anything either… However, against all odds, scrawny and shy Wiglaf will succeed thanks to his wits as a fearless and flawless hero, bravely able to achieve the most incredible ordeals without slaying anyone!
