This is the story of a land distant from your own.
A beautiful land filled with lush rivers, rolling hills, and majestic moutains. We humans live in this land, and we are constantly at war with each other, striving for conquest.
But unlike your world, in this land we are not the only dominant creatures. Our land is also a savage land, teeming with mystical creatures such as dragons, beholders, and demons.
This is the story of the greatest of all the human cities, the majestic city of Avalance. Avalance is awe-inspiring in its scale and prosperity, and its ruler has been my father, King Marius.
Marius has always been a strong liege, protecting his people from the outsider humans and foul beasts that stalk us in the dark of night. However, not all is well in Avalance. Over the last few weeks, darkness has descended on us, and we may not be able to escape it.
I am Gracius, noble prince of Avalance, and this tale is my story. This is a story of betrayal, greed, and power. This is the tale of how I was forced to fight against my will, a fight for my very life.
