Many have heard of the Knights of Dawn and Society of the Evening Star. Tales of the Knight's courage and the Society's evil have spread far in the six months following the battle at Zzyzx. But few have heard of the real warriors. The Ancient, Order of the Sun, and the infamous, secret, Dead Zero. These groups have clashed many times over the ages, first one gains the upper hand, then the other takes control, over and over this cycle repeats. These groups have gone dormant the past couple of decades, but old evils are awakening, the age of shadows is upon us, and many of us don't even know that it exists. We must fight the Shades, even to our last breaths.
