The gods and spirits of all peoples are infinite, and have shepherded their civilizations to the heights of their power, checked only by the other great pantheons with whom they did not wish to war. For time immemorial, these gods have Chosen heroes from their followers to aid their people in times of need. We have known them by many names: Hercules, Beowulf, Bastet, Cu Chulainn, Guan Yu, Ramachandra, the Daughter of Heaven, and others.

Yet now a darkness rises that threatens to engulf all the civilizations of Earth, great and small alike. Can the heroes of Asia, Europa, the Norselands, England, and elsewhere set aside their differences to face it? As the gods once more reach out to their Vikings, knights, Centurions, dharmic heroes, Wu, and others to fight side-by-side against the coming evil…will you answer their call to become Chosen?
