Hundred years of wars have made the whole continent suffer, and nullified the hopes of people for an era of peace. The prophecy goes as “When the evil is awaken, a young folk will be born to decide the fate of Calradia”.

After approximately two decades after your birth, you find yourself in the tavern of the Town of Zendar, where you were awaken by a nightmare. Wearing coarse clothes and with an iron sword in your sheath, your long journey begins.

The path you will follow is covered by a dark, dense fog. In the mist, new bonds with people will be made, you will discover yourself, and the chains that for centuries held back the dark forces, will fade. Motivated by the sense of duty, or your sick desire to please your ego; you will have to move on as everyone does.

Only if you make up your mind, you will see a bright future and gaze at the restored glory of Calradia.

On the continent of Calradia, the never-ending and wicked greed has been swallowing the hearts and nature of human beings. The great wars among the five Kingdoms continued year after year keeping them blind from anything else that moves. The mercenaries were not the only that were attracted from overseas.  New friendships and love, bloodthirsty enemies, iron and fire, death and glory, rivers and seas of blood and tears, The War for Calradia between good and evil begins...

Light or Darkness? The choice is yours.

Main feature:
A glorious heroic poem. Different ways for you to choose.

Plenty of scene vedios, branch tasks and plots. Impressive dialogues and interations among the NPCs with distinct individuality.

Numerous weapons and armors; ultimate equipments with special effects; a lot of props and treasures in a variety of styles.

All kinds of crystals to forge the unique equipment on your needs.

Brand new panels for battle management and quite many kinds of splendid battle skills.

Diverse strategies are elaborately designed: including rrangement for the battle, tactics by team, commanding of the army, weapon deployment, order system, etc.

A set of tactics, as trap, feint, luring attack, are not only practical but also easy handling.

Dozens of kinds newly added for more choices of the horse; deployment system of "horse + armor"  helps to DIY your mounts as you like.

Outflank or frontal attack? - The sea battles will give you very different feelings from the land battle.

A new amazing adventure in the dungeon will bring you the unusual fightings as stealth, backstab, etc. There you are awaited by even more than the troll, the undead, countless treasures, and items of rarity.

You will enjoy every interesting special games, such as horse-racing, shooting, blackjack, slot machine and so on.

And other more creation and improvment have been made in detail for you to play and enjoy.

I've finished the story,very impressive MOD,especially the personality NPC and the powerful Aritifacts.Light or Darkness?It make me remember some other great games,like Neverwinter's Night .What impressed me most is the words of many ordinary NPC like a Village head or a recuit,through these words I see the Mod Maker's consideration about the war and peace. I hope all of you can enjoy this woderful Mod.

War is evil, hated by common people. So the man who acts accord with the principle of Tao will not employ it. The sage uses the arm cautiously and calmly till it's no alternative. He won't be high-blown even in victory. The man who indulges in war and victory is bloodthirsty. The bloodthirsty one can not achieve his ambition in the world.
