An uneasy peace is shattered when the long dormant alfin again invade human lands. War engulfs every human country across the continent, throwing people from every walk of life into a conflict that threatens them all. As kingdoms fall and borders fail, a group of survivors struggle to fight back against invasion; meanwhile, a shadowy evil stirs, walking the earth with mysterious purpose.
