War…

No one knows when or how it started.

In the lands controlled by humans, one fights in the name of peace and justice, one battles for no reason other than to fight, one battles out of greed, to gain more land, and like this, they all faded in the fighting.

The victor edits history to put them in a favorable light, and removes anything that they deem unflattering…

As a result, humanity has lost many things to the wars.

Territory, technology, and their true history…

Now there’s not a single country that’s lasted more than 50 years…

In a world that is torn apart by regular wars that cause no single country to last for longer than fifty years, twelve factions fight.

On the main continent of Schiaparelli, the Reinald Empire reigns in the center of the continent, surrounded by foreign powers and rebellious lands. Though it's nearing the average lifespan of most countries, the powers behind the fourteen-year-old Empress Agnes are determined to be the exception to the rule. To its west, the dwarves of Apoitakara slave aaay at their foges, knowing the day will come to test their weapons in battle. To the south, the country of Alfheim lives in the Ausonia Forest, torn between keeping themselves protected and checking the expansion of the empire to its north, and the lizardmen of Makan to the west.

Farther west, in the Elysium Desert, the religion of Castus has risen up and overtaken the old kingdom with a creed devoted to uplifting the weak and judging the powerful, its uprising waking up the Lion Pack on the Island of Scandia. The seperatist Knights of Cunitz watch on, their attentions torn between the Castus in the south, and the Republic of Musket sitting just north of them on the Isle of Nilus, wielding strange relics of lost technology.

In the remote parts of the world, the Alcatraz Organization plots its takeover from the frozen wastes of Electrus, as the Dragon Knights of Fevnir ready themselves to re-establish their ancient order. And on the eastern islands of Pavonis and Dioscurias, demons lie in wait, while the Kingdom of Gug readies its royal orchestra to make war.
