The plot takes place in the world of Ultana, mixing fantasy and science-fiction, where the Algoad empire dominates everything thanks to the magic energy of the Varsh stones. Astrian, member of a rebellion aiming to destroy the tyrannic power of Algoad generals, will be carried against his will into a secret war between Algoad and the evil mage Reinherz, and go on a long quest to take revenge against the first and survive the latter. He'll eventually discover the importance of the bonds between human and nature, and ultimately fight to preserve them against an antediluvian threat.
During his journey, he'll meet numerous companions, such as Taric and his self-engineered weapons; his young sister Shira, specialized in magic devices; Listy, the daughter of Algoad's ruler and devoted to Life magics, and Edmund, a laid-back smuggler and sharpshooter followed by his robot assistant.
The gameplay is based on a succession between exploration phases in 3D levels with NPCs to meet as well as sub-quests to accomplish, and turn-based fights where the player can control up to three characters chosen within his roaster and use each one's skills and abilities to their best, adapting his lineup according to each foes specificity.
Through quests and battles, each character gains levels that will boost their statistics, as well as new pieces of equipment and Varsh Fragments to socket on items, in order to unlock new skills for the character or other bonuses (once again, a well-thought distribution of the Fragments over the characters helps to get the best of one's roaster). The player will also be able to unlock hidden abilities and bonuses, such as mounts or an aircraft.
