The king is dead and the queen is missing. The only known heir to the throne is believed dead and the fate of an entire kingdom rests in your hands. Enter the land of war-torn Ditherra. A land of pirates, thieves, traders, smugglers, kings, queens, deities and mortals. Wealth and power control Ditherra and the power struggle has divided the land between the East and West. A plague is devouring the population, Mayors are vying for independence of their cities and a rebel uprising has made matters worse than before. You play the protagonist role of Malice, a young female adventurer seeking to unlock her past and find her fortune. You awake to find yourself at the mercy of a stranger, who appears to be helping you understand your past. Quickly, you learn something dark has happened to you.

I REALLY want to play this game. Is there a legit copy out there I can find? I've tried the sites I'm linked to already, and don't see an original Mayhem site.
