Storyline of RODE Online
1. War | Dragon War
In the beginning, the great lord dragons Firean, Azurian, and Devilo have existed. They lived amicably and each dominated the world without hindrance.
However hundreds of years ago, the world lost the balance of power due to a rebellion of the dark dragon, Devilo. This caused numerous wars among the dragons. A great number of them were either slayed or never found. This brought much destruction to them, and thus a truce was found almost inevitable.
Each lord dragon traveled back to their territories to prepare for a new future.

2. Rise | Opening of The Gate of Dimension
Even though there were no traces left behind from Devilo, his plan was later revealed. Devilo’s plan was to dominate the world by opening the gate of dimension. For thousands of years all have known this gate as the one that cannot be opened.
By this moment, Azurian and Firean have already stepped out of hibernation to defend the world against Devilo
3. Triber | Cooperate With Tribes
Besides dragons, many different tribes lived in the world but were gone or mutated into strange inhabitants due to the tribulation of the dragon war. Since then, only Orial, Asarai, Halfkin, Kaebi, Shedi, and Sinkong have been seen living in the world.
Dragons have planned to gain the support of the tribes to gather power and strength. So they began to guard 6 tribes and the tribes soon came to respect and worship the dragons.
4. Clouds of War | No More Compromise
Feral, once a pure and prosperous land was slowly deteriorating from infectious diseases. Inhabitants began to die and disappear, and in its weakened state, Feral was subjected to constant attacks by dangerous monsters.
Meanwhile, there were no more compromises made among the tribes who were highly affected. Tribe leaders who realized how serious the circumstances were traveled afar to find the primary cause.
Eventually, they found out the truth. Devilo, the great lord dragon has been determined as the one who caused these great obstructions. As a result, the tribes decided to form an alliance between the two remaining great dragons, Firean and Azurian.
According to their ideology, this was the beginning of combat against Devilo and his army.
