Zill O'll series
Group DescriptionZill O'll (ジルオール) is a series of role-playing games by Koei. The games share an overarching story with recurrent characters. They are set in a medieval fantasy world, on the continent of Vyashion. Once inhabited by gods, who have departed to another dimension following a bloody war, Vyashion is supervised by the Dragon King, who preserves what he sees as balance by encouraging countries to wage constant war on each other, so that none can ever gain the upper hand. Besides humans, the continent is populated by elves, dwarves, as well as the humanoid races of the tiny Lillbees, the giant Boldans, the Corns who possess a horn on their foreheads, and the vampire-like Darkeniths.
Much of the games' overarching plot deals with war and politics, presenting a large amount of characters. The games are also notable for focusing on sub-quests obtained in guilds, and granting the player considerable freedom as to which quests to pursue.
