One of the survivors is the most popular hero of all mankind: Holy
Avatar. The arrogant knight in shiny armor tells you how a suddenly
appearing sect crushed the whole kingdoms' army.
The land Glory is overrun by creatures of the Dark Church and what's
even worse, HE, the mighty Holy Avatar, was beaten the first time in his

Now it is on YOU, Drake, to recruit a force and fight off the Dark

the high security dungeons.

Well... and there still are the most evil creatures of all: WOMEN!

Yet they have no choice if they want to rescue the land from the Dark
Church's fanatic claws. Established are the Evil Heroes!
