“Once again, the Electors have gathered at Ancient Estra to press for their favoured Avatar to rule the land.

And their followers have joined them, flooding through the gates of “The Rock”, the castle overlooking the city seeking plunder and pleasure.

But the chaos caused by the Monkey King last Quest has torn the heavens asunder. The cosmos is in disarray, and a rift has opened in the skies above Estra leading to the Void. And this celestial rift has drawn the eye of the denizens of the Void, who now look hungrily upon the world.

Who will you support? Who will you oppose? And who will be victorious? Enjoy The Rock, whilst you still can…”
