Many years have passed since the last war with the Death Bringer. But as memories of those dark times began to fade, another war broke out. Out of the mists of time, the magical Axe is discovered. The legend of the Axe is well known throughout the world, for it says that it is the same Axe used by Gilius Thunderhead to kill the Death Bringer. Over time, Axe's powers have grown. It is said that the artifact can grant its owner all their heart's desires. Young and old, good and evil, many are drawn to the power of arms. Thus begins the Golden Axe war.
