Spirit Beasts had all sorts of forms and sizes. They ran amok all over Antreya and it quickly became apparent that these beasts could not be stopped. Entire villages began disappearing overnight, leaving no survivors behind. Armor and weapons proved to be ineffective. Even the most powerful oprinom seemed to leave the beasts unscathed.
Many years of these horrors went by and the situation grew dire enough for the indigenous people of Antreya to be forced into hiding; which began the days of struggle. The fight for survival became a daily effort.
Meanwhile, The Saints had formed together and began putting their powers to the test. After years of research and practice, they found the answer. They were hoping their effort would save the remaining people. Using their powers together, the oprinom that will save Antreya was created, but this new ability came at a great cost. The Saints were never seen afterwards and other mages who were part of The Great Nine lost all of their powers.
Without the help of The Saints, Antreya faced a new challenge. Civilization must be restored, the truth of where these Spirit Beasts came from must be found and the organizations, now broken down to three groups called “Factions,” must be formed together under a similar goal to restore life and order. As the Antreyans began their tough journey of restoration, the people remain timid and defensive.
Due to the nature of the attacks over the past few years, many people believed that only one faction had the correct ideas and showed hostility towards other factions. Others believed that a unity must be formed in order for the land to return to how it once was. The mixed beliefs caused many disputes, but eventually the factions created, or claimed, cities which would favour them, as well as other cities who will despise them.
After months of building, gathering, discussing, and fighting, each faction had claimed locations that best suit them, built training fields, developed combat styles, and had created a permanent separation of the people. Now interactions with each other can range from friendly to deadly hostile, with very little notice.
Moving forward to today’s age in Antreya, it’s time for adventurers and truth seekers to step up, get out, and find answers. Collaboration with other factions is key and the fear of finding information you don’t want to know must be wiped away. It’s time for the training they were raised with to be put to good use. Whether they choose to do this with a group or completely alone is up to them, but the time for action is now!
