background of "Darkness and Light"
is based on the time before science denied
all of the superstitions through the movement
called the Industrial Revolution. When magic
dealt with the supernatural mystery and
science that excluded senseless voluntariness
conflicted with each other while being developed,
the people who transcended human power detected
potential danger of the world. Along this
story, the game depicts the antagonism between
the transcenders and the human.
than healing diseases with the magic?
the Dark Ages, the black plague was regarded
not as an infectious disease but a curse
of God, and people had a belief that being
treated by a shaman would heal such horrible
disease. Conquering of the world by a person
had yet to be made and science gained its
credibility with the Ptolemaic system while
the world was lighted with a torch. It seemed
that it was the world for the king, the
nobility, and the knights. Nonetheless,
there were hidden powers that had secretly
controlled the world, and those powers were
the transcenders who were not a human, the
Mages that were regarded as both human and
non-human, and the hunters.
The vampires, the major power of the dark
camp, were the cursed beings with hunger
for blood. For them, it was impossible to
escape from the desperate starvation until
the end of their lives in the world. As
the uppermost predators in the food chain
pyramid, the vampires had reigned over human
being and threatened indolent people with
the cue of their existence. However as number
of people realized the existence of the
vampires, people tried to act against the
attack of the vampires.
Imbued Hunter: Drop
your humanity as well.
No matter how weak glass-eating animals
are, their existence can be a great threat
when they get together. As the witch-hunt
gets started by the united humans, the tombs
of vampires are dug in the daytime and finally,
the food chain of the world is reconstructed.
Moreover with the appearance of a new group
of people who perform an extraordinary ability
beyond human power, they start to stand
against the supernatural beings that threaten
human calling themselves as'Hunters.'
The hunters, who are bestowed the superhuman
ability through special experiences and
awareness, make their step toward the battle
field to protect their family believing
facing against the darkness is their fate.
The violent crash between vampires that
aim the vested rights over the world and
the hunters who are watching for a chance
of rebellion of the mankind are just begun.
The Arcain Secret that was established in
12th century has set the values of the human
for a long time as the shadow part of the
world. When there is a belief that every
disease that human being suffered is originated
from a curse, the newly risen power called
Scientia tries to drive away such false
belief by proving the origin of a disease
with a scientific evidence. If science is
given to mankind and people can aware the
function of the world through science, the
mysticism will be rejected and thus, the
paradigm of the world will be shifted. The
Arcain Secret that is afraid of the influence
from the paradigm shift decides to share
their power to the darkness
as a way to protect mysticism and magic.
On the other hand, the scientia that supports
the rebellion of human with the power of
science cooperates with the power of light
to initiate their act for the rational enlightenment
suppressing the arbitrary supernatural matters.

of the three major sources and trinity,
the primary force of the world. The trinity
of order, chaos, and destruction means creation,
life, and balance of the world, and as the
order gains its power in the world, the
harmony of the trinity gets shaken. Even
to the destruction that maintains the harmony
of the trinity by ruining civilization and
the wildness, the redemption of the order

due to the influence of the abnormal expansion

The story of myth, legend, superstition,
magic, heroes, and people is relatively
unusual but it is part of our imagination.
In the middle of such unusual world view,
the rebellion of human who have been yearning
to retrieve the world is about to begin.
The history of mankind that has been suffered
from the supernatural beings will be newly
written down by you.
