When one man determines that he must become a god, all living creatures are at stake…



The kingdom of Diversistan, a loose coalition of trading cities governed by a king, lives in relative prosperity. But 200 years ago, the kingdom was in turmoil in midst of a succession crisis. In that battle, Belen, one of the pretenders and a Prince of the Blood, was rumoured to have found ‘the cure to mortality’ which bolstered his support immensely. Eventually, a coalition of lesser nobles defeated him; out of this coalition the current ruling dynasty emerged. The simple folk fear Belen as a demon who sinned against the gods; the skeptics claim the ‘death cure’ was merely his ruse to garner support or even an excuse fabricated by the Cudor coalition to destroy him.

The action takes place on the island of Fallcrest, a strategically important island that lies between the Diversistan mainland and the northern provinces. As the story starts, Diversistan is suffering from increasing attacks from various unnatural creatures, and the contact to some of the northern provinces seems to have been lost. There is no clear logic to these attacks, but some rumour that Belen walks the earth again…
