A compilation of the once-ignored RPG series (which was passed up by an early, RPG-unfriendly SCEA), featuring all three chapters in the Arc the Lad Saga as well as a Working Designs' treasure-pack of extras.
In ancient times, people understood the delicate balance that existed between the physical world and the five Guardians, (Earth, Fire, Water, Wind, and Light), who watched over humanity. In time, the Romalians, bent on global conquest, began to shatter the balance that existed between the two worlds. Only by using the power of the Ancient Ark to stem the dark tide will humanity have any hope of life.
The only one that possesses the power to use the Ark is a young lad named, oddly enough, Arc. Arc has been consumed with learning the fate of his missing and beloved father. Now, Arc shall embark on a quest to discover what really happened that fateful night ten years ago. Along the way, he'll meet many new friends who shall become powerful allies. But does this slight lad really have the strength to find the power stones, rally the Guardians, and wield the power of the Ark? Only time will tell.
