Two kingdoms, Calidon and Veratalia, sharing a common border along the Snowtop Peaks mountain range, have of late become embroiled in a war, known throughout the continent of Atlea as the Verician War. The two great nations have marshalled their forces, and march upon a narrow pass in the Snowtop Peaks to do battle, and perhaps, to decide the fate of the world.
Our heroes are soldiers in the army of Veratalia, either local conscripts or hired foreign mercenaries. They go to fight a war, either out of loyalty, bravery, or simply as a means to fill their stomachs for another day. But no matter how the battle turns out, they will only have begun to decide their destinies, and the destiny of Two Kingdoms.
