Centuries ago, pokemon and humans lived in peace. The Bells of Elysium would ring across the land of Campana, symbolizing their harmonious relationship. Life was at its greatest peaks in the country, but the sins ran rampant among the humans, growing steadily as greed and envy spread like poison in their minds. A group of powerful men, gathered in the darkest of nights, forming the organization that would one day be known as Eidolon Corps. Under their direction, they created pokeballs to capture and harness the power of pokemon, placing them under human rule. Eidolon didn't believe that pokemon were equal to humans, they were just animals.
That was the day the Bells of Elysium went silent.
Decades later, it was a common sight to see, pokemon being captured from the wild to become pets, servants to humans. Some battled their pokemon, some treated them like pets or a workforce to assist in human work. The Pokemon League was founded by pokemon activists, looking to find a way to bring back the harmonious relationship between pokemon and humans. They set rules for battles, promoted good relationships between trainers and their pokemon and for a little while, it almost seemed like things would return to the ways they once were.
But still, the Bells of Elysium remained silent.
A decade passed, the Eidolon Corps surfaced with a vengeance against the Pokemon League, taking control of the world and turned it into chaos and turmoil. The huge battle that raged between the Eidolon Corps and the Pokemon League is the most defining moment in Campana history. Gyms were collapsed, cities and towns burned down. The League lost, outmatched and overpowered by Eidolon. In the wake of that war, only two great cities were left standing, Verum and Ritornelle.
Desperate to find a ray of hope, the survivors of the League formed the secret rebellion known only as Verity, where rumor has it, they base themselves in the city of Verum. Their network is large, thriving in the underground, working behind the shadows to escape Eidolon's notice. They provide aid to terrorized citizens, helping where they can like vigilantes. But their efforts are in vain if they cannot find a way to bring true peace to all of Campana.
Battles ravage the lands, death and fear lurking in every corner. Citizens fear for their lives, because of the large tournaments Eidolon likes to hold every month. Human and pokemon lives are placed on the lines in these gladiator like tournaments just for the entertainment of Eidolon members. All hope seems to be a loss for the one peaceful lands, the harmony between humans and pokemon broken and shattered.
Legends speak of saviors though. Verity has unearthed prophecies from the Carillon Temple. They speak of the silent bells within the Elysium Ruins. Bells that once rang through Campana and brought hope and peace to hearts and minds. Their heavenly tolls might bring peace to the lands of Campana once more. If they can find a way to ring them again. The prophecies have mentioned many times, the power of the Aria. A being supposedly capable of restoring the bells. But no one knows who this Aria is, or where it can be found. With their vast network, Verity has spread the word though, hoping to gather as much information as they can to find this Aria.
In Verum City, 5 brave heroes have volunteer to make the journey to the town of Verdant, where rumor has it, the Aria may have been hiding right under the noses of Eidolon Corps. It is a perilous journey, not only is the town very close by Eidolon Headquarters, but they must travel across the land to get there and return back to Elysium Ruins with the Aria safely. They will meet new allies and new enemies along the way. Will they be able to save their beloved world, or will all hope fall with their defeat?
