1000 years of peace have reined, the world has forgotten the horrors of the age of myth. Such peace can never last forever and evil waits patiently. The first signs of the evil awakenings were the friendly monsters turning aggressive; followed soon after by demons attacking and the dead rising from their graves. Heroes appeared to beat back the invasions until the fateful day that Satan Morocc destroyed the peaceful town of Morroc, his freedom granted by the insane and corrupt humans of Midgard. The heroes re-gathered themselves and pushed back with everything they had but only a stalemate was possible. The delicate seals that protect the world from spilling into complete chaos weaken and break; only the knowledge and power from the age of myth can save Midgard from certain doom. Are you one of the heroes of legend? Can you and your allies push back the threat of total annihilation and protect Midgard from the final Ragnarok?
