Tales of Luminaria - Story Outline
I'll fight for my justice••• And kill yours if I must.
Long ago, this land was home to beasts the size of mountains that have now become petrified. Mana overflowed from their remains, drawing people who sought its power, and civilizations sprang up.
People came to revere these mana-producing creatures, which they named "Primordial Beasts". They built their lives around them. Thus began the worship of the Primordial Beasts.
Time flowed ever onward, to the present day...
War erupts between the Jerle Federation, an alliance of countries who worship the Primordial Beasts, and the Gildllan Empire, which has enjoyed explosive development thanks to advanced technology. The fires of war burn ever brighter.
Federation knights-in-training, Imperial soldiers, and adventurers who owe allegiance to neither side... 21 very different people weave the story of their bonds, and the paths they forge through a turbulent age. Will their varying outlooks lead them to hidden truths about the world? You'll have to play to find out...
