The synopsis:

This is Bhumi. A land where the silhouettes of colossal beasts can be seen stalking across the horizon; where great warriors command terrifying magic, capable of devastating entire armies. A land where Gods and Demons stand shoulder-to-shoulder - eclipsing man; where fate and destiny twist the lives of would-be heroes as they plot their course to greatness.

Above all else, Bhumi is a world divided.

For the most part, the 17 regions of Bhumi have learnt to coexist harmoniously. Enjoying a peaceful existence that has lasted a great many years.

One small, unnamed province in the southwest threatens to usurp the peace enjoyed by the world of man. Home to a race known only as the Darkseers, whispers spread like wildfire from this nameless place, permeating Bhumi telling of a terrible conflict that cannot and must not be avoided.

These Darkseers have turned their attention to an area known as the shallows.

An unyielding, fervent darkness threatens to extinguish the life of all that it conceals. One man, a benevolent Demon-King that has sworn to protect Bhumi stands at the front of a small army dedicated to ebbing the flow of this evil.
