Ten years have passed since the war with Cinos and with the triumphant return of Sonic, peace is had once more. Atril and the Gathering have pretty much returned to life as usual and the tactician and former enemy Lilliana joins back with the Outsiders. But peace is never a certainty and the leader of the Outsiders feels a coming of something that will break that peace. Once again our heroes must discover what it is to fight for what you believe in. Chaos Reigns is inspired by "Normalcy is for Wimps".
