Evan the troll decides to burn his bridge and venture out into the world of Gothmoria for the first time to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a singer. He soon meets Brendar, who had been expelled from the Royal Order of Warrior Princesses and is now known as a "feared and revered" barbarian. After Evan convinces Brendar to bring him on her quest to vanquish the evil demon, they cross treacherous terrain to confront bizarre and magical creatures and encounter an eclectic puppet cast of wacky characters.
Brendar and Evan travel to Horus' castle, where the wizard hires her to defeat the evil witch who turned his daughter into an owl. Brendar chooses Axe as her payment, while Evan has to prove he's worthy of going with the group on the quest.
As the quest to the witch's castle begins, the group must pass through the ominous Swamp of Fears, where one's worst terrors are unleashed. Brendar is surprised to come face to face with a deep-seeded anxiety that will test her leadership in new ways.
