It is in the dreams of ancient beings that monsters are born, and it is when these monsters appear from the shadows that heroes are made.

Nearly four hundred years have passed since the demonlords took what they wanted, since The Great One loosed upon the realm swarms and hordes of his spawn into the world. The names of those who fought to reclaim their lands now begin to fade into the pages of time. There is not much need for heroes in times of peace, and those who would claim to be seldom are.

For those who seek to become heroes and those who remember the names of heroes past, a question wears away at their patience: How long can any peace last?
