Prologue Edit

Transcending history, and the world,
A tale of souls and swords eternally retold...

AD 1591: Great trade routes link China to the rest of the world, dotted with caravans filled with luxurious goods; silk was the greatest of all. As these caravans traveled across the Middle East, bandits and nomads found them easy pickings for theft. As a result, mercenaries were hired to escort them across the great distances, protecting the merchant class and their wares. Rumor has it that the shards of the Sword of Salvation, the greatest weapon ever created, could be found along those trading roads, attracting the attention of many who seek such power. Further whispers hint at the presence of the dreaded Nightmare along those routes. Warriors flock to the Middle East from all over the world, and so this epic continues on...
