Long ago, the ancient's of the world of Weyard discovered the secrets of Alchemy.
They found that all life in Weyard was based in the four elements: earth, wind, fire, and water.
They used their knowledge of Alchemy to forge a dazzling civilization from the elements.
And the ancients made their wildest dreams come true.
Then began the nightmare of Alchemy.
Abuses of Alchemy threatened to tear apart their entire civilization. So, the ancients did the unthinkable: they sealed away the power of Alchemy so no one could use it.
Civilization was saved, but the physical world itself began to die a slow death, for the ancients didn't realize that Alchemy was what held Weyard together.
Without the force of Alchemy, lands went barren, seas went dry, and the planet began to crumble.
And then civilization itself fell into the darkest of ages that came before its final, fatal extinction...
The ancients had sealed away Alchemy to save civilization, but they had doomed Weyard.
But while the oceans churned and life on the continents slid slowly to oblivion over the eons...
A legend was kept alive that held the key to Weyard's survival.
If the four Elemental Lighthouses could be ignited, their energy would trigger the Golden Sun event over Weyard.
The Golden Sun would unleash the force of Alchemy-saving the world!
Thirty years ago, a group of heroes did save the world with the Golden Sun.
A shadowy threat is soon to be unleashed.
