200 years ago, in this land of Shalyeun, a star fell to earth, and the world began to change.
Even now, 200 years later, pieces of this "star" continue to be found all over Shalyeun. They are jewel-like shards, valuable not only for their beauty, but for the fact that they hold within them magic, ranging from mundane to powerful.
There is, however, a flaw in their power - they corrupt and kill the natural magic of Shalyeun, making it impossible for those who use the shards.
The Jenaviir believe the star shards are a gift from the gods, and use them to power magical weapons to protect the people from the beasts that have been corrupted by the star's power.
The Aldynni, on the other hand, believe that the shards are a curse, and seek out the fragments to destroy them before the magic of Shalyeun is beyond repair.
As these wars rage, something has begun to stir in the darkness beyond our world. It wants the star shards, and to get them, it will purge mankind from existence.
