The races of Harkovast are embroiled in a bloody and bitter battle against The Nameless, a force made of literally Faceless Goons intent on destroying the rest of the world. While the races struggle to overcome deeply entrenched hatred of one another, a lone group set off in search of the Shogun, who may be the only hope they have.
Also, it's a Furry Comic!
