In a time long ago the whole world was ruled by the Empire Of Magic. There lived many mages and the most powerful amogst them held the power in his hands. One day however his fate fullfilled. Mayhem and terror took control over the land as everyone was fighting for power. In the meantime strange thing began to happen in the border territories. Troops of soldiers became to vanish and sometimes even the settlers. Well, a situation worth a closer look but none of the superior mages wants to leave the capital city in the time when there are hot places in the government being severed. One of the minor mages (embodied by the player) is sent to the southern border. Little by little he uncovers the complex story and finds out that the first look is sometimes wrong and everything is totally different.
