Since ancient times, mankind and the Sundered Land have always been divided by what was known as the " Millennium Peaks" - a range of mountains even a flying dragon couldn't corss. Naturally. mankind had thus always been curious about what mysteries may lie beyond. And in an ironic twist of fate, that curiosity would be fulfilled in a most unwelcome way.
With a thunderous sound that shook the entire land, the Millennium Peaks came crumbling down, unveiling ancient ruins from the era of the gods. People could finally bear witness to what had been hidden away in the Sundered Land for countless ages - and unfortuately, it turned out to be thousands upon thousands of giants. it became immediately apparent that these were not friendly creatures as they mercilessly turned cities to rubble with mere swings of their gigantic arms, crushing families and histories alike.
Now, the kingdom of Rune Midguard is fighting valiantly for survival against these invaders. The war has been fierce thus far, with massive casualties, but the resilient humans have managed to keep the giants at bay - if only temporaily. In an effort to prevent any recurrence of this massive tragedy, those in power ordered an enormous fortified wall built at the entrance to the Sundered Land, to stand as a last barrier of hope and help fend off any inevitable future invasions.
The residents of the kingdom may never return to their once peaceful way of life, but they will fight for whatever measure of prosperity they can still find. Their one and only reason to be hasbeen ingrained into every citizen and turned into a rallying cry that echoes throughout the land: " Fight against the giants, and survive!"
