From the introduction:
The Castle Kophinos, once one of the most splendid houses in the land, has fallen upon hard times. Five years ago, it is said, the wealthy and reclusive Nikos Kophinos (owner of the castle) made an unheard-of trip to town. Furthermore, he was on foot, and was in a state of utter hysteria about "the devils" having taken over his castle. No one has visited the castle since — least of all Nikos, who is still "resting" at an insane asylum.
Naturally, this has hurt the Kophinos family reputation. Distant relatives have offered a reward to anyone who can "clean out" the castle completely. No one has collected.
The reward is more valuable than gold. The Kophinos family has commissioned the forging of a magical sword, a sword of awesome power and breathtaking beauty.
The sword has no name. It will be named by the adventurer who wins it.
But the family is very insistent that the castle be completely cleared of malevolent beings. If even one remains, you forfeit the reward.
