Both humans and Beastkind reside in Vainqueur, a continent of five nations. Of these nations, the western kingdom of Granorg has been at war with the eastern kingdom of Alistel for the last 50 years. Far from these civilizations lie dangerous lands where monsters run rampant.
About a century ago, a mysterious phenomenon called "desertification" began encroaching from the western side of the continent, turning all land it reaches into sand. Year by year, the remaining habitable land shrinks further. Without a solution to this growing problem, Alistel and Granorg have been forced into bitter conflict over what green land is left, as the future of the world grows dimmer and dimmer.
