XALE is a mystical medieval-like world governed by the eight Divinities of the elements:Aelina Rowan
Ashe, Rayne, Glacia, Terrin, Starr, Luna, Silva, and Tempess.
They keep the world protected and regulated.
Over time, these goddesses have been mysteriously falling asleep,
affecting the seasons in catastrophic ways.
As a result of their slumber, lyrical priestesses known as Stonesingers,
are convinced by the Crusaders to make a pilgrimage across Xale to
awaken all eight Divinities to prevent further calamity.
But how will the heroes avoid the deadly wrath of the goddesses?
Understanding the mystery of ghost shards may be the key to victory.
