Of all the nations ever to rise and fall in the world of Alea, the grandest and most powerful was Valdia. The Kingdom of Valdia has stood for over a thousand years, and even its most recent monarchs can trace their bloodline back to the kings of old. The Church of Valdia has always held a powerful influence over the monarchy, but centuries ago, a new religion emerged: the Church of Stag. Fearing this new religion would weaken the Kingdom of Valdia, all followers of Stag were persecuted and forcibly exiled.
On the outskirts of the Kingdom of Valdia, the demonic realm of Besek mysteriously appeared. Besek is home to the creatures known as Majin, who have been a constant terror to the men and women of Alea. In the ancient scriptures, it is said that the Eternal Poison lies within the depths of Besek. There are many legends surrounding the Eternal Poison. The Church of Valdia believes it will grant the wishes of he who finds it. The Church of Stag believes it will grant the bearer power beyond his imagination. Is it a gift from the gods? Or it is something else entirely…?
