Enter the Nine Realms Of Empyrean, where an unprecedented era of peace lasting for thousands of years may finally be coming to an abrupt and devastating end.
Follow Michael d’Assyr, the leader of a group of insurgents on a mission to upend the Order Of Masters – an ancient and mysterious sect of self-proclaimed agents of the mythical Angels Of The Highest Order, working from the shadows to maintain an unparalleled epoch of universal harmony throughout Empyrean by ending all wars, extinguishing all international squabbles and the conflicts of empires by means of re-weaving the Fabric of the Grand Tapestry of Reality.
However, the so-called perfection that the Order Of Masters fights to preserve is not without cost, and as its Lord Master Aegis struggles to acquire a suitable Successor before the end of the Age, the empires of Empyrean begin to question whether the ancient Order’s place in the world is still necessary or even welcome, and tensions rise amongst the world powers as well as from within the Order itself.
