In times of peace, the discovery of a wish-granting goddess has caused
the rebirth of the Dark Dragons. Now they are amassing armies and
seizing towns, it is only a matter of time before the world bows before
them. The time has come for the Light Dragons to strike back, but they
have all been wiped out or are powerless. One young man will rise to the
challenge. He will have to travel the world and gain the powers of the
dragon, but he will not be alone. Seven other warriors from clans
throughout the world will go with him, and together they will somehow
stop the Dark Dragons, and the fanatical goddess that guides them.
