For ages, mankind tried to fight back the evil, but was unsuccessful, and just before all was seem to be lost, four heroes stepped forward and drove the darkness back, bring peace and tranquillity back to the world. As a result of the war, the world was divided into two kingdoms, the Magic Kingdom and the Steam Empire, but after many years, the Deathbringer has returned to the world and threatens to destroy the world once again.
