You the players will be taking the part of one of the mortal warriors embroiled in a war for humanities survival. Be you a foreigner stuck on the island of Najin, a samurai or survivors from the mainland, you are all bound by a common goal. To return the world into the hands of the living. Each of you have been given a "Heavenly Weapon". Weapons that can permanently kill even the Sanguine Nobles, leaders of undead.
Once the home of a mighty empire, the lands of Watai now lay still, reeking of death. Any remaining bastions of Humanity, like Sa living cities are walled up, their sentinels forever vigilant. The Nang Dynstasy, the former rulers of his vast land, is no more. Its empress dead, and its nobles savage vampiric undead who fight as much among themselves as they do the living. TO the south, rumors speak of the Twin Empresses alliance falling apart, and of their very own dark horrors starting to emerge.
In the north, the Steppe nomads who were forced to retreat across the desert to escape the undead Nang dynasties violent deaththroes, speak of a savior. A great Khan who carried divine favor. Who will help them rid the world of the monsters that now roam their old steppes.
Of its coast and across the Crimson Sea. Lies the country of Najin, a country once divided by petty rivalries and the pursuit of power and glory. Now united in desperation to push back he dead. Before the sanguine fever overtook it like it had most of the mainland, interactions with the Nang Dynasty had been purely antagonistic, many of its ships flying black flags and profiteering of piracy along the Watai shores. However, Naji was not spared the sanguine hunger, as one of these ships drifted into the harbor of Yukiona, carrying with it a crew of undead.
From there, the undead spread like a plague across a divided country. But Najin would not befall the same fate the the mainlands as a monk by the name of Naito Tahoma found a way to halt the undeads tear trough the country. Contained within a old scripture that his monestary had been entrusted with a long time ago, he found means to combat this evil. He rallied to him the last remaining retainers of the various living clans and together, the last of the samurai road to meet the undead hordes that were once their comrades.
It was a hard fought victory. But now, Najin stands as a bastion of hope in a sea of blood. Gathering for the first time ever, is the everyone of the living leaders, ancient enemies and rivals, all united in one purpose. To make sure that the sun will once again rise upon the living.
