📖 Useful Story Terms 📖
- Seer: A mysterious person who has sent our heroes on their journey.
- Seed: A mysterious object foretold by the Seer to have the ability to save a dying world.
- Order: A powerful church organization who's purpose is to maintain peace among many factions.
- Aloia the Reaper: A title given to an assassin who had been linked to many cause of deaths.

- Although the story is skippable, the story and combat are meant to compliment each other to fully flush out the game. To maximize experience, I recommend consuming them together.
