Maugeter is not a heavily story-based module. There is a central plot, which builds up to a finale, and there are "critical path" quests which you have to complete to progress.
However, the primary emphasis is on exploring the world and completing adventures and quests within it. The plot appears at a laid-back pace rather than being pushed on you as an urgent matter of life and death. Some players will find they prefer this, and others will wish they had a bit more emphatic direction.
The player's story, such as it is, is that they have travelled to the big city - the biggest city in the land, in fact - in search of adventure, or their fortune, or power, or the chance to do good.
In other words, the default.
