Evil goes underground...
Everyone knows of the Five Heroes who sealed the Black Mage away long ago, but few have heard the tale of the World Tree, the source of all life in Maple World. In dark times, the Black Mage plotted to seize the World Tree's power, and he almost succeeded. Weakened by the Black Mage's attacks, the tree retreated to the Root Abyss, a sanctuary of life and energy deep beneath the Sleepywood where she could recover and become whole once again. But the Black Mage does not let his prey escape so easily...
Now, rumors of a young girl trapped in the abyss have caught the attention of the Cygnus Knights. Descend as deep as you dare into this magical realm, and prepare yourself for a battle that will determine the future of life itself. Four masters of darkness await... will you answer their call?
Pierre wants nothing more than to have his tea at the Afternoon Tea Table, but people keep ruining his plans! He twists the minds of lost Maplers with sinister puzzles and tricks. He may look pitiful, but Pierre is a cunning foe.
Von Bon has scrambled time around the Root Abyss to confuse and disorient anyone who enters. He's half man, half chicken, and all smarmy, monocle-wearing evil.
The Crimson Queen is a little off her rocker. She's fixated on having a red garden, and she'll stop at nothing until every last plant is painted, even if it means turning a pig into a human and enslaving innocent Maplers to do her dirty work.
Vellum is accustomed to snacking on the lizard people who live under Sleepywood, so Maplers are a rare delicacy indeed! But someone has to be brave enough to stop this rocky dragon before it consumes Laviola, princess of the lizard people. Anyone?
