You are an all powerful being. No one in this land has seen somebody so skilled in combat, so exotic and foreign, and you’re just in time because its people need your help. The undead and other monstrosities are invading the countryside, though they are no match for you: you are the offspring of angels and demons, imbued with their grace and destruction. Eventually you will meet foes far more cunning, more brute, and less merciful. But allies can join you, new weapons can be crafted from the remains of battles, and your fighting style can adapt to any situation.
