13s So I have him here with me to talk a little bit about what that means.
17s So first up, Soomin, what is Voldis?
21s So story wise, a long time ago, when Sacria's capital Rasamoa was destroyed by the Guardian Vaigry, the scholars were like, excommunicated from the city of Sacria and left and discovered Voldis, that is a continent filled with life's energy.
41s And in Kalinari, the city of the Sages, they built the Sage's Tower to replace the fallen Ivory Tower that they left behind in the city.
54s So these Sages, in Voldis, spent a lot of time to research and practice alchemy.
60s So Kalinari becomes a bustling city with people traveling from all corners of Arkesia to seek the knowledge and wisdoms of the Sages, as well as advanced technology utilizing alchemy.
74s So Kalinari is reminiscence of the public Garden of Babylon, blending fantasy with high tech.

96s Okay, so before you can get into Voldis in December, you have to complete a series of prologue quests that starts with Madnick's Call.
106s The Guardian has awakened and Madnick needs your help to investigate.
112s So it may lead you to a place that stores all of the world's knowledge and wisdoms.
