THE CLANS.

Long ago, an ancient, sacred crystal hurtled from the cosmos and violently struck the planet of Ailur, shattering into six uniform pieces. Each piece possessed its own unique brand of magic.

Upon settling, the crystals called out to the creatures of Ailur. Stirred by their calling, the feline-like Anagativa gravitated in hordes to the crystal shard that spoke to them the loudest. It was here they made their home.

Thus, the six clans of Ailur were formed – each one discovering how to harness the powerful magic within its piece of the shattered sacred crystal.

Masters of the natural world and what exists within it, the Nisargans are a gentle and kind clan. They call upon their crystal’s eminence-based magic for protection, but only in times of great need.

Skilled in divination and all things occult, the Myrtunan crystal’s malediction-based magic allows this clan of necromancers to summon the spirits of warriors past to aid them in battle.

The tundra-dwelling Tandarans are skilled hunters and fishers. They summon their crystal’s eminence-based magic to manipulate weather, freezing any enemy who dares to approach.

From the hot magma of their volcanic landscape, the Keozans craft awe-inspiring weaponry. Their crystal’s fiery, malediction-based magic grants them the power of flame and fire in battle.

The Sykomanans are masters of the mind and matter. Their crystal’s heady, malediction-based magic allows them to manipulate time and space, using the power of confusion to thwart their foes.

The pure-hearted Lyuminans seek the energy of light. They use their crystal’s eminence-based magic to gather the energy of the sun and stars, harnessing its power to stun all who dare to oppose.

 

the objective.

Few Anagativa possess the gift of Kristala - the ability to communicate with the magic-infused sacred crystals. To understand their longing. To know their desires.

As one blessed with the gift, you must embark on the quest to becoming a famed Raksaka warrior: keeper of crystals, master of all Ailuran sacred magic.

As you journey clan to clan, seeking out the crystals and overcoming obstacles and enemies along the way, you must discover who - or what - has cursed the creatures of Ailur, mutating them into monstrous, murderous beasts.

Before you can fully master each crystal's magic, you must first defeat the six powerful Shard Guardians that stand watch over them.

When you've completed your Raksaka trial, defeated all enemies, and uncovered who's responsible for the curse, you will have won Kristala.

 

the lore.

Each clan believed the magic within its own sacred crystal to be superior to the others. While they first existed in relative harmony, they slowly became weary of one another, fearful one might someday become more powerful than the rest.

But there was much more to fear than one another. The rodent-like Kotakaya who lived in cities and towns that lay beyond Anagativa clan territory craved the magic of the crystals for themselves. Though the Kotakaya urged the Anagativa to share their magic, they refused.

After years of growing dissent, a devastating war came to Ailur. The Mad King - leader of the Kotakayan empire - unleashed his army of abominations on the Anagativa in an attempt to willfully seize what he believed should be his.

Though heinous and especially brutal, the Mad King's army proved no match for the powerful magic of the crystals. The Anagativa emerged victorious and eradicated the Kotakayan monarchy. Many fled, banished into the shadows. Those who remained were forced to adopt the democratic way of the Anagativa.

The ugliness of war receded. The voice of the crystals quieted.

Although peace had returned to Ailur, the Anagativa feared the day when the safety of the crystals might be challenged once more. And so, they cast aside their greed, joining together in search of a solution.

Eventually, it was decided that the strongest, most magically skilled members of each clan would forego their clan affiliation and become the first of the famed Raksaka warriors - protectors of the sacred crystals and keepers of all clan knowledge.
