Distant Souls takes place in the historical events in Dyrvingahl. Long before the start of the game, a dark being killed Nathan's parents, destroyed his entire village, and started a war between the Three Proud Nations. 15 years later little is known about the dark being and those few who track him down call themselves hunters; each hunting it for it's own personal motive. Today, the world is in complete turmoil, many factions constantly form alliances to take over cities; lasting their control as short as the alliance was formed; while hunters have to make it's way through to reach their ultimate goal. Player's hunters will have to face with the decision to involve in local affairs or stay distant as much as they can.
