The Battle of Good and Evil
When the world was still young and yawned at every dawn’s waking. Granas, the God of Light, came. All was bathed in the holy light of Heaven. Thus those were the days of marvels. Yet, there were those who sought the power to resist Granas; they found power in Valmar, the God of Darkness. Power to release the energy bound up in life. Power to unmake the world. Thus, in those days, they made war. The fighting continued endlessly, until the Sword of Granas pierced the infinite darkness of Valmar. The mighty blow from Granas not only smashed Valmar to pieces, but also carved several ugly scars in the very surface of the planet. These are the Granacliffs that survive even to the present – scars in the land.
Ryudo is a young Geohound, working odd jobs with his companion Skye. Known for his ability to do just about any task, he quickly built a reputation as an efficient workhorse. Willing to do what no one else wished to. Bouncing from job to job in order to keep the gold flowing in, Ryudo accepts, a job involving the Church of Granas, in the village of Carbo.
Once in Carbo, a beautiful voice carries on the wind, singing hymns to Granas. Intrigued, Ryudo enters the nearby church and finds a Songstress, Elena, practicing hard for an upcoming ceremony. It is from here that Ryudo accepts his role, bodyguard to the Songstress Elena. And so two strangers head out on what seems to be a simple assignment.
