Lured and tempted by the prize, many choose to join the Games. To do so, they need a mysterious and powerful Gem. The Two scattered these precious stones through the ages. Whoever finds them might decide to enter the timeless realm in which the Games take place, and compete in them. It might be that the Gems feel their resolve. Maybe, some kind of ritual is involved. Be that as it may, the competitors become little pawns in the gods’ hands, tiny pieces on a giant chessboard, transforming into so called “NANOs”. They must fight until they win. There is no turning back: as a security, the Gem tears out their soul and absorbs it, trapping it within. Thus, the Games begin.
