Lore[edit | edit source]

Door of Truth[edit | edit source]

The Door of Truth is the dimension where pacts are made with Ouroboros. Strong souls who come in touch with a Philosopher's Stone can be called to the Door of Truth. By making a pact with Ouroboros, one can obtain the Forbidden Art. It is said however, that when one's willpower and soul collapses, one's soul gets swallowed by the Door of Truth as compensation for the pact.

Ouroboros[edit | edit source]

Ouroboros exists in another dimension called the Door of Truth. She is only visible however to anyone who has made a pact with the Door of Truth. By making a pact with Ouroboros, one obtains the power of Alchemy, the Forbidden Art, and can create all things, even without using a Philosopher's Stone. 

Philosopher's Stone[edit | edit source]

It is said that anyone who obtains a Philosopher's Stone can use the Forbidden Art of Alchemy.

Seven Kingdoms of Babel[edit | edit source]

Long ago, there was a war between the Seven Kingdoms of the Babel Continent, in which Alchemy was used as a weapon. Because of its enormous destruction, and sensing its threat to humankind, the Nations of Babel formed the Alliance of the Seven Kingdoms, led by the suzerain state of Northern Pride. They branded Alchemy as the Forbidden Art.

Continent of Babel[edit | edit source]

The Continent of Babel is comprised of the far-reaching lands beneath the Tower of Babel, within which the Kingdom of Northern Pride holds a leading function. Located to the North is Slothstein, there are Lustburg and Greed Dike to the East, and Envylia, Old Wratharis and the Desert Zone to the West. Gluttony Foss and the Saga Region are spread out to the North of the Desert Zone.

Tower of Babel[edit | edit source]

The sky-piercing tower which Nimul and Emmel, the founders of Alchemy, built using their power. It rises in the middle of the continent and can be seen from any of the land's kingdoms. It now stands as a symbol for the great foolish sin mankind has committed.

Nimul and Emmel[edit | edit source]

Long ago in the distant past, there were two who aimed to become gods. They were Nimul and Emmel, a brother and sister who are considered to be the founders of Alchemy. It is said that they used forbidden arts to build a tower that rose to the heavens.

Alchemy[edit | edit source]

Alchemy allows its users to create anything in exchange for something of equal value - even Souls are no exception. Warriors and heroes of the past can be manifested through the transmutation of souls. These are specifically called Phantoms.

Phantoms[edit | edit source]

Phantoms are the manifestations of the transmuted Souls of warriors and heroes from the past - a product of Alchemy.
