IN THE YEAR 940 AFTER MONRO A DISCOVERY WAS MADE, THAT WOULD SHAKE OUR WAR-TORN, BATTERED EARTH.
The trustworthy servants of Lord Bor Damon of Damon City, North Castilia, were searching the ancient Wasteland Ruins at night. Their lord, a curious man, hoped they would bring his people some valuable discoveries - though many of his peers and subjects feared such excursions might bring the Plague, or the Ones Whose Very Name Brings Disease, inside the walls of Damon City.
To temper such fears, Lord Bor Damon kept these nightly expeditions secret. The time and date of the earth-shaking discovery were recorded by his servants' memory wheels. At exactly 3 hours 47 minutes in the morning of the 8th of March, the servant expedition unearthed the undead corpse of Darc.
Little did these humble metal figures realize their discovery would alter the course of history...
