The year is 158 V, the Age of the King, named after the restoration of the King of Findle. Costly wars between Findle and the Legault/Dan dynasty have crippled both nations and resulted in the current ruler, Jodanwei, shutting down trade with the Western nations 14 years ago.

An era of uneasy peace has formed in the wake of the war. Soldiers and mercenaries struggle to find their place in a country sick of warfare.

Port City Mungu attracts people of all walks of life, from ex-soldiers to desperate merchants to those seeking enlightenment, and that is where the adventure begins.
