With the world slipping into disarray, recently the powers that be have claimed cities of their own. Now known as the cardinal cities these cities are separate from the other countries and powers that surround them. All located within 100 miles of each other in a rough diamond they surround what is now Known as The city of Balance the Home power of the Aeons. The space between each city is now a constant battlefield, day and night Fiends and Angels battle for supremacy upon these fields and to attempt to reach the city of balance is a risky proposition, Only Four roads lead to it now, each a direct path to one of the cardinal cities…

Ostax – The City of Tears
