The year following the events of Heroes VI, several ships have disappeared in the Savage Sea during sudden and mysterious storms. In itself, that wouldn't be so surprising - these waters are known to be dangerous and unforgiving, but these captains in particular were experienced seafarers.
The Pirate Council has hired the legendary Crag Hack to find out what happened. Crag Hack has been it all: mercenary, barbarian, and pirate. It is therefore time again for this legendary Hero to be called out of retirement and embark on a new and perilous adventure.
