In the world of the game - Telara - there is a conflict between two factions: the Guardians and the Defiant. The first worship the higher gods of Telara, among the representatives there are high elves, dwarves and the race of Northerner Mathosians.
The Defiant, on the contrary, does not adhere to any religion because of historical and cultural reasons or because of personal choice. They put more emphasis on technology and science. Among the representatives of this faction, one can find a race of highly advanced humans from the south called Eth, dark elves and a symbiosis between humans and Air-spirits called Bahmi.
The world of the game is divided into regions by the elements that are controlled by dragons-deities, personifying one of the basic elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Life, and Death.
