It was only a matter of time before the Selentine Merchants
ventured too far from their trade routes, over the South
Seas, searching for rich lands that might lay beyond.
But they were unprepared for the terrors they would
awaken, and the devastation they would unleash upon
the world of Etheria.
At first, the southern continent seemed a peaceful, idyllic
place - warm and tropical. But that would soon change.
Although rich in gold and silver, the Selentines soon
met the inhabitants of this new land - snake-like creatures
who called themselves Ssrathi and their land¡K
Keshan. They were names that would come to be feared
in later years.
The Selentines slew these first Ssrathi and took their gold,
thinking them simple and primitive. But Nature too is
simple and primitive, and it wields the most destructive
powers and so it was with the Ssrathi. Their empire

Shaman-King, Iriki, was a creature whom even the Gods
The war that followed would change the face of Etheria forever.
Join with the many races of Etheria as you fight your way
through the ruins, jungles and deserts of the southern
continent of Keshan, searching for new lands to conquer,
and the treasure with which you might build an Empire
Or take the role of the Ssrathi the snakemen
of Keshan as they repel the invaders and then unleash the full
might of their empire upon the northern realms!
