A dark presence has taken over the town and you are the only one who can rid the stronghold of Erid Buul, the mysterious new Lord and his ghastly cohorts."

For some reason the dialogs relating to creating your character and fighting don't seem to be in English. Not sure what the problem is but it's a bit of a drag. Also I had trouble entering the characters name, for example once I entered the first character i couldn't erase it.
