Rome is in peril and only a hero such as General Gaius Scaevola can save the day. He is badly needed to help the people of Rome rid themselves of their Etruscan overlords. The city of Rome is in turmoil. Its tyrant king, Tarquinias, has been overthrown and has fled to nearby Etruria. He begs Porsenna, the king of the Etruscans for help. He needs his army in order to regain power. Porsenna finally agrees and now the newly founded republic of Rome is at war. Tarquinius and the Etruscan army control Rome. Rome is under siege, its people are starving. Legendary heroes come in all shapes and sizes but there is only one Scaevola, "the iron fist."
