The Empire of Snow is facing its first serious threat. From out in the desolate, frosty tundra, the emergence of strange high-tech beacons has stirred the brightest minds of the Imperial Defense Services into action. Led by the charming, but reckless Ruro, a small crew discovers the mystery of an emerging internal threat begins to shake the foundations of this many millennia-old society.
Deep inside the heart of the sacred central mountain, Mazda, lies most of the bustling capital city of Frix, where society’s most glamorous and most vulnerable live side-by-side. In the slums, a young girl named Ericho, crosses paths with a mysterious stranger who sends her off on an adventure to deliver a special parcel thousands of miles from home at a place known as “The Sanctuary”. On her journey, she comes face to face with some of the most treacherous creatures in the Empire, both monsters and men. Early on, she comes in contact with a small community, hidden away inside the mountain. They explain to her that they are apart of an ancient group that is sworn to protect the life energy of Mazda, but before much more can be said, they’re mobbed by a group known as the Reclaimers. They also wish to protect Mazda, but their approach to its security involves eradicating all of the vermin who have planted their roots inside, effectively announcing their intentions to destroy all who live inside. The group begs Ericho to quickly get to The Sanctuary” so she can warn them of the impending attack on the mountain.
