After a land has long since become enshrouded in legend, and the light of its glorious past is filtered by the dust of the ages, it falls into the danger of yet another peril. And while that peril should like to disprove the realm’s glory, often it is that a greater legend is born. In a world where history is no different from legend, and prophecies are promises from the gods, unyielding in their faithfulness, reverence and wonder shall never cease. The legends and prophecies written into the holy texts might not be fully understood, but they are truths nonetheless. Even the most esoteric tales, known only to the priesthood, cannot be dissolved by time; the future shall look back upon them to watch the warrior emerge from the flames and tears to prove the might of his spirit. For the hero of legend, awe shall forever endure.
