As “Battle Servants” of the Glaive Kingdom, the heroes are put to work by the Shadow Knight

For his own amusement, the Shadow Knight forces his Battle Servants to fight monsters in deadly combat

Each day, they’re taken from their jail to fight for their lives, and each day’s victory earns them just enough food to survive another day

But the injuries caused by repeated fights and the irrecoverable fatigue caused the Servants to fall one by one…
