Old Tom is a mercenary. In his youth, he fought for Mordred in the war against King Arthur.
But, as his name implies, Old Tom is not as young as he used to be. These days he prefers simple, low-risk jobs.
When a witch asks him to find an old book in the ruins of a school of magic, Old Tom thinks it will be exactly the kind of simple, low-risk job he’s looking for.
He is wrong.
