A war was raged in the age of scriptures.
It was a war between the god of the heavens and Revya the mage.
The battle continued for 256 days.
The power of the mage was immense, and it seemed as though even the deity might be destroyed.
The god created dragons and sealed his own life within them, continuing the fight.
The mage lost the battle, and his spirit was sealed within a sword.
Years passed, and these events fell into legend.
One day, thousands of years later, the seal was broken with an eerie thunderous knell.
Revya, the last mage of the ancient times, had resurrected along with 5 henchmen.
One of them, a monster who had sprouted wings, kidnapped the princess.
According to rumor, the princess was imprisoned within Gelb Tower.
King Cassis dispatched soldiers in order to save her.
However, there wasn’t a single soul who was able to save the princess and return home safely.
At a loss, the king decided to beg the assistance of travelling warriors.
The king put up an official proclamation in the village that read “The one who rescues the princess will become her groom.”
Swayed by the pleas of the villagers, a female warrior who happened to be in Ehdo Village decided to rescue their beloved princess.
