Nearly 14,000 years ago, the almighty Akene waged a war against the forces of evil, led by the malevolent god, RAHKDAN. In a desperate effort to turn the tides, RAHKDAN summoned the gates of the Netherworld into the heart of Glenheim. The blazing gates spilled out monsters across the land, but it wasn’t enough to win the battle. RAHKDAN was defeated and his commander, Hellbehrith was killed by the dragon Tertis. Before he fell, Hellbehrith infused all of his power into a dark orb. Thousands of years passed and, although RAHKDAN was defeated, the conflict between humans and monsters continued. While climbing the Herongrid Mountains, the renowned mage, Atomos, discovered a fracture of Hellbehrith’s orb and learned that it possessed dark energy which increased the owner’s magical power when it came in contact with the gates of the Netherworld. The mages ordered for all fragments of the orb to be gathered and sealed, but the people of Glenheim were able to locate them and use them for evil. Eventually, the gates of the Netherworld were re-opened and Hellbehrith’s soul was resurrected in the form of Hermes, RAHKDAN’s sword. Now the fallen commander’s soul possesses the evil Nefer, who plans on taking over the continent of Glenheim.


CONTINENT OF THE NINTH SEAL (C9) takes players to the fantasy world of Glenheim, in which they fight against evil forces and gigantic monsters. Utilizing extremely powerful melee, ranged and magical skills, players will fight swarms of evil, demonic forces using FPS style controls in a huge, dungeon-based 3D world.
