Plagued by seemingly interconnected dreams, Nori, an unemployed middle-aged man living with his retired father, inexplicably finds himself transported to a dream world where magic lurks in every nook and cranny. After the dragon, Resi, sends him to bring her food from the nearby city of Drei, Nori finds an unlikely companion in the tyrant Selb and finds himself recruited as a soldier of Drei. Soon, he embarks on an adventure, roaming the lands as he encounters various magical creatures, including goblins and arachnids, while discovering a nefarious plot of a group of anarchists who delve into forbidden experiments. Now, as the Lord Marshall of Drei, Nori must lead his forces in a stand against the dreaded Devourers who threaten to destroy the continent and its inhabitants.
