Seven years ago the Kingdom of Torloria was besieged by the bestial Goa Empire. Through decisive strategic planning and the sacrifice of countless heroes the Iron Guard of Torloria managed to keep the relentless hordes of Goa at bay. The Kingdom now finds respite under a thin veil of peace.

“The Roshel mines are undermanned.”

In the country’s outskirts, many of the young are summoned to the frontlines while those who remain toil in the mines, seeking a rare resource coveted by a religious order.

The sudden reappearance of monsters in the mines will spur one young miner to challenge his destiny — to confront his shameful past, seek redemption, and carve out a legacy befitting the son of the fabled ‘Hero of Torloria.’

To succeed he must decipher a cryptic message that he alone can hear:

“You must protect Fate.”

His is a journey fraught with tribulation, but his companions just might be the strength he needs to overcome the trials that lie ahead.

Will they rise to the occasion, and together save Fate from the forces that lurk in the shadows?
