The kingdom of Harmonia was what many people thought of when they heard the word paradise. A vast empire of prosperous cities ruled by just and wise leaders, and rich verdant wilds, ripe with nature's bounty. The people of Harmonia rarely wanted for anything; being both hard-working, and free of troublesome neighbors. This life of plenty, however, may have proven their downfall. Decades of peace, and prosperity, saw little need for a large military presence in Harmonia. So it was that when large holes began to open up in the ground, all across the country, and fell creatures began to scurry and slither out to pillage and raid the countryside, many simply did not know how to react. The initial shock quickly gave way to panic, however, and calls to arms was sent out across the land, summoning any able-bodied men and women who might be able to hold their own against the darkness that was now seeping into the land. One such place in need of aid is the farming village of Eversmile. A close knit community of about two hundred people, they have never known the kind of danger they now face as giant vermin now scuttle out of the local woods to pick off livestock, and strip orchards bare.
