Under instructions from a being known as "the Shaper", Beowulf travelled to Castle Hrothgar in Daneland, to fight the monster Grendel. On the way there, Beowulf and his men took a detour into the Underworld where they rescued Nan-Zee, a Swedish scylfing warrior, from the demons who had been controlling her. Beowulf, Nan-Zee, and his companions Wiglaf and Hondscio continued onwards to Castle Hrothgar, but were again detoured, ending up in a bog where they battled "Swamp Men." Beowulf and his friends fell through a dimensional gateway beneath a patch of quicksand into a fiery underworld they referred to as Hell.
Beowulf later discovered that the only way to slay Grendel was with the nectar of the "zumak fruit." He encountered Dracula, a mysterious Lost Tribe of Israel, Ulysses accompanied by a troop of anonymous Greek warriors, Egyptian/Sumerian space aliens straight out of "chariots of gods", and the lost city of Atlantis.
Beowulf and Nan-Zee travelled from Atlantis to Crete, where they finally got their hands on some zumak fruit in the labyrinth of King Minos where Beowulf fought a Minotaur that was being controlled by Satan. Because Satan has made Dracula his heir over Grendel, Grendel killed Satan by plunging a stalactite into his back. The Minotaur died, and Beowulf ate some zumak fruit, granting him supernatural strength on par with Grendel. Beowulf and Nan-Zee made their way back to Daneland in order to slay Grendel who had taken Satan's place as king of the Underworld.
