Adventure. Beldar and his companion, Sonja, are underground fighting off monsters on their way to finding a particularly sought-after gem, the Heart of the Warrior. The theft of the gem carries a curse, which means that Beldar has to die. Prior to his demise, in another world - current-day Madrid, to be precise - Ramon, a teenager, wakes up one morning. Beldar and Sonja are in fact characters in a role-playing game played by Ramon and his teenage friends. The narrative swings between Beldar's fate and the modern-day fantasies of Ramon and his pals. Sooner or later the two worlds begin to become intertwined.
