The result of the creation of the Beast by demonic forces — the single continent of the western hemisphere was shattered into to four (Elemontia, Iangdia, Numen and Durbia), the eastern continent into three. Entire civilizations were lost, including the grand Alondran Empire, leaving behind the Shattered Sea. Elemontia itself cracked apart at the Pilliastrin Sea, creating new mountain ranges. Nearly all the vianor cities were destroyed, and many human settlements were laid waste. Gods and demons each were killed.
As the Beast then began to rampage through the world, striking randomly, leaving tremendous swaths of destruction in its wake, the Palkara devised their plan to end the war with the demons and neutralize the Beast.
