In the year 1601, the skies opened and the Second Deluge began. For forty days and forty nights it rained, drowning many lands. But this was not the end of God's wrath. Every year the waters creep higher, ever higher.

With the waters have come darker things. Once again the dark forces of ages past have returned. Corrupt abominations wander what land is left and dark sorcerers wield demonic powers for the simple price of their souls.

But all is not lost, Gods hand can now be seen visibly at work once again. Priests once more can work true miracles; they can heal the wounded and the sick and they can drive the dark creatures back into the shadows that spawned them.
