Three dark empires ally as three dark gods merge into one unholy trinity. Concepts concerning life cycles, evolving, revolving into passing seasons, yin and yang, are all immersed into a ballistic journey laden with symbolism. The Christian Crusades were a skirmish in comparison as some deep journeys are inevitably drenched in blood.
Dark dragons seize the moment to defy their god given tasks to protect the lower races from genocidal tendencies. Evil dragons were to protect the darker races of ogre, troll, goblin and such, while good dragons protect elf, dwarf, and human. Dragons no longer wish to play their protective roles. Instead, evil dragons intend to captivate and cultivate elves, humans and dwarves like sheep, cattle or pigs.
An island sets in the center of the World Sea that provides the perfect rest stop for flying dragons. Rampaging evil denizens dominate the isle, but both an elf and a human empire have naval outposts upon the fringes of the rocky coastline. Between the two military installations sets the finest trading city that elf and man has ever established together. Neither of the two empires intends to let this fair city fall without a bloody rumble.
