The Amulet of the Empire
Many years ago, there was goodness and peace in the world. The Darkness was weak, and stayed dormant, away from the hearts and souls of humankind. One fateful day, the Darkness was awakened in the heart of one man, and it spread throughout the land. The world was introduced to an evil they had never known before, and through hearts that were easily strayed, it flourished. The gods decided to destroy humanity to stop the Darkness from gaining control. Only one goddess, Selta felt pity for humankind, and gave herself to be sealed in an amulet to save the world. When the amulet falls in the hands of the Darkness, will mankind be able to stop its spreading, and save themselves from destruction?
