A long time ago, seven heroes saved the world. Before they went away,
they said they would be back when there's a crisis. Recently, monsters
start to harm the innocent people. People were hoping for the seven
heroes to return. Indeed, finally, the seven heroes have returned, but
this time, they are monsters killing the innocent people. The main
character of the story starts on a quest to save the world. Players get
to play different generations of the royal family. They can develop a
country of their own, and can allocate resources in your country to
invent things. They can pass on techniques and skills to any
descendants, and save weapons for them.
