About Record of Agarest War :

It was the end of the age of gods... An age that ended when the door to oblivion was opened. There were five continents in the world of Agarest, each one pierced by a great pillar that towered toward the sky. These soaring monuments were the gods themselves. The beginning of our story and the end of the age of myth find their start on the continent of Lucrellia when a young man named Leonhardt sacrifices everything, even his future and his children, to protect an elven girl. At death's door, he pledges himself to a contract... This is the final tale of the gods; a story woven in souls across generations...
