"The first casualty when war comes is truth."
- ―Hiram Johnson (U.S. politician, 1866-1945), opening quote
- Mercantilius and Pastoralis are two towns on the verge of all-out war. When Hercules wanders into their little disagreement, he's shocked to learn that he's already been there. And he's betrayed them all!
- There is only one possibility – someone is posing as Hercules. The real son of Zeus has a feeling that same someone is playing the citizens of Mercantilius and Pastoralis against each other – for a much more sinister purpose. Someone with superhuman powers of trickery and deception. A certain cloven-hoofed god with a bad attitude...
