Story Synopsis:

"Branzen. The Holy Lands. A world of Light and Dark. Flesh and Metal. The massive city, Akon, created by his holiness, Akanakon. A united, true empire. Or so it would seem..."

"Eighteen years ago, a terrible event happened. 'The Scream', a massive tear from which ceaseless darkness spewed. This darkness corrupts the mind and body, twisting those affected into monsters. 'Daemons', they call them."

Eighteen years since the 'Decade of Darkness', The Scream still stains the skies of Branzen. Franz and Lefsa Dellia, amateur Technomancers, are studying this strange phenomena, in an attempt to prove that it's expanding. Rapidly.

"Now, only one thing is true. The sun is setting on this world."
