Xiola, a world of magic, heroes and gods. A world beset by war, a war that has torn the landscape apart for over a century. Small respites of peace nothing more then shallow breaths before the conflict begins anew. Even the newest call to peace, a meeting between those who plunged the world into darkness is seen as nothing more then just another brief breath before the plunge. What brought the world to such a state? It was no man, no beast, no cause, no belief, no ideology, it was them.
The Fourteen, the personifications of life's Virtues and Sins, born over a thousand years ago on the same year, at the same time, at the same moment. With their first breaths, the world shuddered for it knew nothing would ever be the same again. Each Virtue and Sin are powerful beyond mortal measure and would each become revered as a deity in their own right despite what they may have wanted. Their power able to bring salvation and destruction at their whim, and it was because of this that the war began. The war has garnered many names by those shedding blood in it or watching it flow, some call it the Great War, the Sin War, the War in Heaven, the War of Lust and Wrath, the War of Pride... Whatever name one puts on it, it has forever changed Xiola as nearly every sin and virtue, along with their nations, beast and power, were thrown at each other.
A war that erupted from nothing more then jealousy as the sins of Pride and Wrath warred over their shared desire for Lust. A lover's quarrel, something that happens across the land, the source of tale and woe has threatened to drown Xiola in blood. Now, as Pride's forces and allies of Sins and Virtues nears total victory, a peace summit was called... once again, a last desperate attempt to end the conflict before more lives are lost, and it is here that our story begins.
You will play a Sin or Virtue. Attending the summit to find a way to bring the war to an end that does not involve the extermination of nations and cultures. But... can it be stopped? After so much blood, with so much power gifted to beings exemplifying the best... and worst, of us, can we be pulled back from the brink of Armageddon?
