Chapter I - The Beginning: Nights of the beautiful continent Neha gleamed bright with two moons. Beautiful as it may be, it was no kind of place for humans. For survival, the Ancients had discovered a powerful force they named Terre, the very souls of Neha. By unleashing its forces, Ancients attempted to gain power over Neha. They had thought they could tame its powers with mana-technology. However, it was only a futile attempt. Soon after, the Ancients realized that Terre was destroying the balance of the lands. To stop Terre from destroying Neha completely, Ancients gathered their last resources to seal Terre forever. A difficult mission, but they overpowered Terre, and have named seven keepers to defend the seal of seven souls of Terre.
Chapter II - The East and The West: The continent was saved from destruction, yet the devastation was nevertheless great. Terre had caused a Great Fissure dividing the continent into two, The East and The West, and powerful ocean currents took over separating these lands forever. And now, after a thousand years, The East and The West cultures formed two distinct civilizations. Ignorant of each others existence. And the knowledge of the seven souls and its keepers forgotten.
Chapter III - New Age: 1001th year, The East and The West witnessed a heavenly devastation. The smaller moon, Babylon was destroyed, shattered into pieces. The event has changed ocean currents of Neha unveiling a vast sunken territory that bridged The East and The West. For the first time in history, two continents learned about each other. And new lands were to be explored and conquered. New knowledge was to be discovered and exploited. The inhabitants of Babylon who escaped the destruction moved to Neha introduced stunning technology to people of Neha. The West eager to explore the new lands, quickly declared Babylonians as their friends. The East advanced in astrology and magic took destruction of Babylon as an ill omen and kept to their traditions.
