Nearly 10,000 years ago, five cosmic entities—a dragon, a phoenix, a serpent, a lion, and a wolf—converged on a single point in space. With each determined to prove itself as the most powerful of the gods, the entities agreed to hold a contest of creation. The cosmic beings retreated along their original paths to create their own planets and inhabiting warrior races.
These planets were set upon a 10,000-year journey for the collision point, where rested a diminishing black star counting down to the end of the age. Each race would have one chance for survival—destroy the rival worlds, or crash into the other planets and die.
