In an age long past… evil flooded over the land. Creatures awash in the dark tide ran wild, pushing mankind to the brink of annihilation. In its despair, mankind appealed to the heavens, and from a blinding light came hope. The Sacred Stones. These five glorious treasures held the power to dispel evil. The hero Grado and his warriors used The Sacred Stones to combat evil’s` darkness. They defeated the Demon King and sealed his soul away within the stones. With the darkness imprisoned, peace returned to Magvel. But this peace would not last… The continent of Magvel. For some 800 years, a quiet peace reigned in the absense of the terrible darkness. The Sacred Stones have been passed from generation to generation. Nations have built around their power and their legacy. The kingdom of Renais, ruled by Fado, the peerless Warrior King. The kingdom of Frelia, ruled by Hayden the venerable Sage King. The kingdom of Jehanna, ruled by Ismaire, Queen of the White Dunes. The Theocracy of Rausten, ruled by Mansel, the Divine Emperor. The Grado Empire, ruled by Vigarde, the stalwart Silent Emperor. These five countries house the power of the Sacred Stones. They are joined by the emerging mercantile republic of Carcino. In these times of peace, tales of past conflict have drifted into legend. And memories of the ancient dark arts have all but evaporated. It is now the year 803… In an instant, the whole of Magvel is threatened by an unexpected atrocity. The Grado Empire, the largest of the Sacred Stone nations, has invaded the kingdom of Renais under orders from Emperor Vigarde. A longtime ally of Grado, Renais is caught off guard, unable to mount any resistance. Grado’s forces move quickly, seizing one territory after another. Compounding King Fado’s worries, his son, Prince Ephraim, has gone missing. Grado’s momentum carries its armies to the gates of Castle Renais itself.
Renais will fall… It is inevitable.
