This is the story of a faraway land.
2000 years before the current era, Avrul, god of creation made The Draguun, a race of beings bearing the bloodline of the dragon gods. They excelled in the mystic arts and built a prosperous civilization, ruling over the world for many years.
However, The Draguun were also an arrogant people, and eventually fell to the hand of the powerful magics that they themselves created. After the disappearance of the Draguun, wars broke out among the remaining, uncontrolled races until in the land of Athals, the empire of Darua united the peoples of their land. Thus began the age of Athals.
In the 100th year of Athals, however, the emperor of Darua fell into madness; and in the wake of this, his empire quickly collapsed, but was divided among three factions - the Kingdom of Diement, the Council of Qhopati and the Haersant Federation. Working Together, the three countries built a strong alliance, and created peace in Athals. The people found happiness in a world without conflict.
However, over time, monsters that were supposedly sealed away by the angels, long, long ago in the time of legends, began to appear once again. Not only appeared monsters and beasts, but at the same time a race of demons known as the 'Elder ones' turned their attentions to the lands of Athals.
The sages say that 'Something which had once sealed away the Elder Ones is losing its power' and the fortune tellers say that 'The balance of the world has begun to collapse', but not one could be truly sure of the reason of their return. The people hold on to their visions of peace, while living in fear of the unknown.
But among them, some stepped forward, searching for the artifacts left long ago by the Draguun, some collecting bounties to destroy these terrible monsters. These men and women, with strength and skill above that of the regular folk, weilding the powers of magic and ancient martial arts, became known as "Adventurers".
As the many adventurers travel over the lands of Athals, yet another dark shadow looms just over the horizon.
