As long as the Kingdom of Reknum has existed there have been legends of a powerful secret hidden within that land. The myths speak of Sacred Crystals, rich in power, but unable to be claimed by any who were not deemed worthy. For only someone who had a soul as pure as driven snow, with wisdom and courage to match, would be able to lay claim to that power.
Reknum is a beautiful realm, filled with towering mountains, wide forests, and deep oceans teaming with life and magic. Its rulers have long been just and fair, and peace has reigned for many a year…until the betrayal of the Sorceress.
Just where the Sorceress came from none can say, but she soon had the ear of Reknum rulers, advising them in matters of magic and statecraft. She was soon indispensable, and that is when she struck. Capturing the Princess, and imprisoning her in a Soul Shard, the Sorceress seeks to use that fair lady’s essence to gain the power of the Sacred Crystals for herself, and use it to rule the world.
The Princess, is a last ditch hope, was able to send her friend, Vani the Fairy, in search of a soul full enough of courage to come to her rescue. She barely managed it before she was locked away, but Vani was soon soaring across the skies, searching for a savior.
Our brave heroine has been found by Vani, and is only just now awakening. This is where our legend begins.
