The Prophecy

"When the sky burns and red stars falls, the last light of Illyria shall fade."

- the Oracle

Legend tells of a great hero coming to age, a guardian with the power to unite the divided people of Illyria. Together, they will finally defeat the forces of Chaos, and lead the kingdoms into an age of peace.

The Past

In the beginning, the world of Illyria was ravaged by the first Chaos War. The Valkyries, the protectors of Illyria, and the Chaos Legion battled endlessly, leaving both sides decimated. The world was left in a dark age, known as The Desolation.

During this time, the kings and queens of the Great Kingdoms desperately sought to protect their people from the destruction of another war so they looked to their magecrafters for answers. In secret, they discovered a new way to utilize Star Crystals, a rare resource that fell from the sky. This finding unveiled the Star Crystals capability of storing and unleashing immeasurable power, igniting a worldwide arms race.

Lore

Unbeknownst to the humans, however, the red forms of the Star Crystals were corrupting and destructive. One-by-one, the Great Kingdoms fell, succumbing to the great powers of the blood-colored crystals. These rulers, once the defenders of humanity, became the very darkness that they were trying to prevent. Consuming the raw energy from the red gems the kings and queens warped into colossal titans, the Ancients. Physical manifestations of evil, twisted and malformed, the Ancients grew endlessly with each crystal collected. Hungry for power, their red armies wandered the world of Illyria, destroying all they once protected.

Lore

The Sky Kingdoms, led by Valeria the Lightbringer, were the last chance to save humanity. Banding together and putting aside their differences, the last of the humans and Valkyries used the remaining uncorrupted Star Crystals to raise entire mountains to the sky.

Placing the Star Crystals at the center of their Guardian Castles, the Kingdoms took flight. Carrying the surviving humans and Valkyries, these flying fortresses were able to escape from the corrupted Lower World and the wrath of the Ancients.

In the skies, civilization was reborn and Illyria welcomed an era of relative solace.

The Present

Oracle, the last Valkyrie Seer, has long spoken of a great hero who will lead the Kingdoms to glory and bring true peace to Illyria. A series of unexplainable events forced the prophecy into motion. Never before seen burning skies and red starfall have heralded the return of the Chaos Legion. The Ancients once believed to be independent of any outside influence, were seen working with the Legion in the Lower World. Together, they have found a way to reach the kingdoms that were once beyond their grasp.

Valeria, the Lightbringer, has sounded a call to arms to all Guardians. Now vulnerable to the darkness, the humans must unite in order to save the Kingdoms.
