From the introduction:
Welcome, traveler, to the world of Aurania. Thousands of years ago, the continent was split between two rival kingdoms: Cacophony in the west, and Silmor in the east. After a long and bloody war called the Great Dissonance, Cacophony finally triumphed over Silmor in a battle in what is now known as the Quagmarsh, but ruined itself in the process. Since then, four nations have risen on Aurania: the Cherrystone Kingdom, the Felheim Legion, the Floran Tribes and the Heavensong Empire. These nations live together in relative peace, but that will all be changed when an ancient Vampire from Felheim, Sigrid, slays the current king of Cherrystone, Mercival, causing political ripples that threaten the entire continent.
