Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage Story Summary

Told as a “Wuxia” story, which literally means "martial hero", Rain Blood Chronicles: Mirage captures the essence of a broad genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists.

Shrouded in secrecy, an organization of assassins wreak havoc on the local populace.  Two assassins Soul and Shang, find a window of opportunity to strike while all their enemies can be found in one place.  Their mission is simple: take down all their enemies or die in the attempt.  They will face many challenges and discover lost secrets as they embark on a perilous journey against terrible odds.  

Take control of Soul and Shang and wield two separate martial arts styles to defeat their foes.

Soul is an orphan born with the temperament of a master. His skills are self-taught and so lack refinement, but his potential is undeniable. He favors Dark Wound, a short bladed weapon given to him by his adoptive father, rumored to be one of the Night Masters.

Shang Zuo is a calm, unflappable fighter of average skill, but who possesses a centered view of all things powerful enough to influence physical objects. This “Sword Temper” skill allows him to destroy objects without moving a muscle and to knock arrows out of the sky with but a single thought. Together they will face the unknown and harness new skills as they face down a terrible conspiracy.
