Story

"The demon king, who sent his creatures to plunge the world into terror and chaos was sealed by the hero and founder king, brave Bandiera and his comrades five hundred years ago. But signs of his resurrection have appeared, so the imperial sorcerer and prophet Nostora Damas informed Chaos Bandiera, the 22nd king of Bandiera. Before long, the king issued his decree, and the four chosen heroes set off for the north, where the demon king is said to be sealed. This is the story of a world of swords and magic, of its 'heroes' and its 'demon king'...and also the story of the commonfolk around them." -Chapter 1
