For centuries, the nation of Malkala has bought peace with the larger, though fractured, Empire of Chesia through trade subsidies and bribes.
Now, a warlord has united the Empire under his Red Dragon banner and he's not interested in buying from Malkala; he wants to own it.
The Army of Malkala must fight a juggernaut many times its size and face the temptation of gold and lands; a temptation not everyone can resist.
