For most of the past four millennia, peace has reigned over the Kingdom of Carnava. “The Grand Kingdom” has flourished due to its close cooperation with the Witches of the Rev Magic Association and the ever-present usage of magic.
Unfortunately, the era of peace has come to an end. Fatima, the Shadow Frost Witch, broke from the Magic Association and has taken over Granend, the Forbidden Land, with the use of magic. This infighting, dubbed the “Witch Conflict,” has pushed Carnava to the brink of chaos. When the young squire Roland gains magnificent powers due to a chance encounter, Sophia, the Queen of Carnava, calls upon him to bring about an end to the discord.
