30 years ago, the world became infected. A strange mineral burst through the earth in crystal spires and ripped the world into chaotic shreds of humanity. The mineral, known now as Paracite, spawned nearly impervious crystalline monsters that destroy all in their path. Mankind clings to what reminds of civilization, but without help, their time will be short. Their only hope is the order of the Paracite Knights. Armed with specially engineered weapons that can harm the Paracite, they stand proud and stalwart against the threat of complete infection.
