For those who don’t know, Crisbell is an orphan girl living in the Narim orphanage. While she searches for a rose, Matias, a talking frog, brings her to the Church of Narim (inspired by Las Lajas Temple), to unleash her powers. After the events, Matias asks Crisbell to accompany him to visit his friend Willhelm, a time mage who will explain in detail the origin of her powers.
After a series of quests until she finds the village’s farm in flames and is invaded by demons under the command of the Empress of Time, the aim is to take over the Crystallis Kingdom. To avoid a dire future, Crisbell turned to Willhelm for help, and he told her everything. Crisbell is determined to use the power of the Sword, becoming a time mage to save the timeline to bring peace to both the past, present and future.

“It’s too early to say exactly how the metaverse will form, but we consider it a shared 3D society for commercial purposes,” the company said. “It will itself be an evolution of the Internet as we know it, and its foundation will be built on real-time 3D technology.”
