The great Darkness has fallen, and the Empire with it. The arcane crystals which once powered entire cities were shattered, and the Darkness was destroyed by the magics unleashed. All that remains are the lawless ruins known as the Wildlands, and the shards of the crystals that have been strewn across them. Now a few souls, the brave and the desperate, seek the shards to harness their power for their own ends. Take control of one of four factions, from the spell-slinging Mages` Guild or the nimble Gnomads to the versatile Lawbringers or the hard-hitting Pit Fighters.
