The story is based on the events in a fictitious world centered around the "Mainlands". A merciless Emperor has risen from the west and laid siege of a sizable portion of the Mainlands. His gigantic Empire (known as the Axal Empire) threatens peace and courts destruction to the surrounding kingdoms. To repel the Emperor's invading attack, the remaining eastern kingdoms of the Mainland unite and form an alliance. A resistance leader, Eroberer meets two boys Zindor and Rador who pledge to contribute. Eroberer sends them on a mission to acquire a set of magical objects. Joined by a Gladanian town girl: Rohya and Eroberer's little sister: Esha, they are escorted by a man they meet on their journey called Nebu. The five travel together to pursue a powerful legend and collect objects.
