Hellbent

Long before the first men, Kampo, the God of light and his lords created the Sun by pooling their power into an orb then setting it permanently above the infinite wasteland of the mortal realm. As light shone over the region, a haven emerged, forever surrounded by shadow. They called this land Bastion. With the passing of time life sprouted, inhabiting the new world. Among these creatures was man. The lords, pleased with the events, persuaded God into creating a stronger link between the realm of the lords and the mortal plane. Temples where built on key areas and a glimmer of the Sun was locked inside each one, creating a bridge between both realms and warding Bastion from the shadow that threatens to consume it. Mighty men were chosen by the lords to be kings, and were tasked with the protection of the temples. For ages balance was kept and Bastion stood proud against the shadow of death... Then he arrived. He came from the edge of the world, beyond the shadow where only death dares tread; He carried nothing but that accursed stone, impossible to break, yet somehow split in two. He walks for the temples...
