Oh yeah, I just find out it is going to release soon, so not too far away from now. I will keep you updated on it. Let me know if i miss anything.
In the beginning, Quillas, Father of Heaven, awoke from chaos to find that the universe was quite, vast and tedious. He then created thousands of unique worlds and separated them with boundaries. He plucked hair from his body and enchanted them with part of his power to make them gods with different capabilities. These gods were then sent to the different worlds as guardians and builders in his stead. None of these worlds was ever close to perfect and stable. The rise and fall of good and evil forces was breeding conflicts and crises. But Father of Heaven decided this should be the way, and after the order was initially established, he fell into long sleep again.
Our story unfolds in one of these worlds, Stilland, a magic world accommodating various creatures, including humans, elves, dwarves, giants, orcs, dragons, animals and evil forces with tremendous power. There was a short period of quiet time after the worlds came into being, when all forms of life lived in peace and harmony. However, as powers and desires swelled, struggles and conflicts, declared or not, came one after another, numerous wars bestowed different destinies upon the races. Some races vanished, while others rose; some allied with each other, while others continued endless fights; some dwelled atop high mountains, while others lurked into abyss seas...
Life breeds desire, and desire breeds strife.
War has never ceased, neither could it be.
( Background Story Concept)
During the past wars, an alliance between humans, wood elves and ravine dwarves, known as Phio Alliance, was gradually formed. Humans living in the world of Stilland established four kingdoms, Glance, Disarn, Weirgburg and Stalla. There are also human factions belonging to none of these kingdoms, like the bandits living on Pandar Prairie, who called themselves Pandar Hawk, and a zealot group known as Purple Twilight.
In the year 148 before Stilland Calendar, the chaotic orcs successfully persuaded the darkcliff dwarves and the gray elves into a sudden strike against the human kingdoms, Glance and Stalla. In consideration of self defense, Disarn and Weirgburg did not dispatch instant reinforcements, which almost led to the fall of their own kingdoms. The horrifying war lasted more than 100 years. In the end, with the help of wood elves and ravine dwarves, the humans drove the evil forces completely out of their territory. Witnessed by wood elves and ravine dwarves, the kings of the four survived kingdoms signed a treaty of alliance on Mount Phio, a holy mountain in the south of Stilland. The treaty stipulates that the kingdoms must form an alliance at war time and offer resource assistance mutually whether at war or in peace time. It also stipulates that upon the age of 14, princes must make a study tour to other kingdoms to promote mutual understanding and friendship.
The peak where the treaty was signed came to be known as Four King Peak afterwards. On that day, the four human kings, together with Iona, Queen of Wood Elves, and Kruel Hammer, King of Ravine Dwarves, blessed the land to celebrate the signing of the treaty. Therefore, the peak was recognized as a holy place by the Phio Alliance, and stationed by senior priests and elite soldiers all year round. In memory of this great moment, the human kingdoms which adopted different calendars in the past, decided to make this year the first year of the Stilland Calendar. The other races, although insisting on their own calendars, gradually came to recognize the universal status of the Stilland Calendar. Eventually, they began to use both the Stilland Calendar and their own to communicate with each other and record history.
After that, all races ushered in an era of peace and rest. There has been no major war since then, despite some minor conflicts.
As ages came and went, history sank into legend.
In the Stilland year of 656, Scott the Redneck, the ambitious young ruler of the chaotic orcs, backed up by the substantial properties inherited from his predecessors, plotted evil against the Phio Alliance for its vast territories, enormous wealth and powerful magic. He has even deployed forces in many places and started spy missions and tentative attacks against the alliance.
Meanwhile, the dark dragons took frequent actions against the humans. Evil and cruel, fark dragons are a mutated brood of dragons born after the ancient war between the dragons, known as Dragon’s Cry. They have not only increased the number of their offspring, but also captured some slaves from the other races.
Apart from that, another force, more ancient and evil, is looming in the unseen corners.
While in the human realm, although people seemingly lead a peaceful life, abnormal and strange things often take place here and there. The relentless undercurrents seem to foretell the storms drawing near.
Not long ago, the Kingdom of Disarn has just lost their wise king, who died of old age. The kingdom now is ruled by the prince regent, since the prince is yet too young.
The queen of the Kingdom of Stalla died of a strange disease on her travelling tour, and the beautiful queen newly married to the king, is seemingly in harmony but actually at variance with the princes and princesses.
