Before the dawn of history, in an age when great sorcerers walked the lands
and mystic creatures abounded, the world existed in a constant state of
turmoil and war.
The evil Ashura and his powerful warlords waged an eternal war to crush the
Mystic Pantheon and stamp out the light of reason once and for all.
Eventually a great sorcerer, Sky-Lord, arose and defeated Ashura, banishing
him from the realm forever. Centuries passed, cities rose and fell and
eventually even the great deeds of the Mystic Pantheon and the evil Ashura
passed into legend.
Until one day, a gifted apprentice sorcerer inadvertently freed Ashura from
imprisonment. One by one Ashura began to capture and irrevocably transform
the descendants of the Mystic Pantheon, making them his evil warlords.
As the last free descendant, you are Sky, set upon a quest to free the
young sorceress Arianna and face Ashura in mortal combat to end his
tyrannical rule once and for all.
