The Gaterri Imperium has invaded the independent states of Epiterr. One by one, individual nation-states fall before its soul-crushing might. The only hope of stopping it is an alliance of the remaining nation-states, but a thousand years of bloodshed and betrayal seemingly crush any hope for Epiterr. Epiterr needs heroes that can unite it and stop the empire.
Before this backdrop of an implacably advancing, nigh-unstoppable foe, Epilieth, the god and protector of Epiterr, has vanished. In his place, he has left...you, his sons and daughters. Born of a divine father, you hear the faint whisperings and whimperings of the prayers to him that go unanswered -- possibly even unheard. But you do not have the power to answer those prayers -- at least not yet.
