First Son is an 11 year-old boy who might be a descendant of the mythical First Peoples, and legend has it he will save humanity from their lizard-man overlords and the monstrosities that plague the three lands. Of course, the Lizard King will be scouring the cities and countryside for him and for the mercenary who has taken him in, the famed and deadly Sword, a devout practitioner of his most deadly art. With the help of his apprentice, Farah, First Son and Sword must search the three lands and beyond for a way to defeat the Lizard King and save humanity. Updates every Sunday.
