It started off like one of the ancient Greek tragedies. Years ago, the goddess Valdis was killed by her daughter, the dark goddess Myrgato. Death, however, is something completely different for the immortal deities than it is for us, mortals. The name of the Goddess was never forgotten, nor shall it ever be. In absence of the mother goddess, Myrgato has been at war with her twin sister, Alagath the deity of light. This perpetual war is fueled by human souls that the gods use to create their warriors; Myrgato twisting souls into demons, and Alagath manipulating souls to create angels. Each day the remaining human population dwindles as they are forced to choose a side or die. The time has come to put a stop to the supernatural tyranny. With sword, and sorcery, the chosen champion of humanity must fight back.
