Long ago, in the land of Etheria, there was a league. This was not a league of ordinary men, warriors, or craftsmen, but a league of angels! Each angel, reigning over a different part of human life, insured peace and prosperity across the land for thousands of years, in return for humanity’s devotion.
Unfortunately, this arrangement was more fragile than people would think. The forces of darkness, bent on enslaving humanity, and stripping Etheria its natural resources, had risen again. Normally, the angels would rise up, send them back to the shadows, and the people of Etheria would go on, living happy, carefree lives. This time, however, things were different.
The forces of darkness knew something the humans did not, that the angels derived their powers from the Seal of Life, and without this seal, they would be severely weakened. So, this time, they stole the steal, before hatching their plans of death and destruction.
Things got so bad; the forces of darkness began hunting the angels, killing them, one by one. Now the angels have turned to the men, they once swore to protect, for help. These heroes of humanity are known simply as “The Brave”, and they have sworn to repay the angels for their years of protection, by leading them into battle, and taking back the Seal of Life.
