NGames, a leading online games publisher, is today delighted to reveal Pockie Saints – a brand new graphically rich MMORPG inspired by the gods of Order, Chaos, and the 12 Zodiacs.

Pockie Saints, a new MMORPG coming soon to Game321.com, puts players in the middle of an almighty struggle between Order and Chaos. When the Blade of Chaos crashes down to earth, Pockie Saints players must overcome unique divine challenges, tackle special instances, utilize various pets, collect medals, and master the Zodiac horoscopes in search of a Holy Blade capable of restoring peace to the world. Before it is too late.

Publisher NGames has today detailed the background story behind Pockie Saints zodiac inspired world, setting the scene for the action-packed MMO adventure.

Before the world was created, Isus – God of Order; and Kreel – God of Chaos, ruled over a chaotic universe. Upon creating a new world of hope, Isus battled Kreel in an attempt to prevent chaos touching the land.

Isus won, but in doing so he knocked the magical gem from Kreel's sword, sending it crashing into the mortal world. He also found he made the world worse, causing it to be too fragile to cope with with his immense power. To save the world, Isus detached the World Origin from Kreel to create life and proceeded to seal himself with the God of Chaos for an eternal slumber. But not before he created 12 gods to help manage the mortal souls, one for each month of the year.

The 12 Zodiac Lord Gods were each named after stars that best represented their status. These were: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Tasked with creating a City of Clouds to seal the Holy Sword and the Blade of Chaos, they used their remaining power to oversee the mortals. However, having no souls rendered them unable to rule the world with absolute justice.

It is said when the star the god chooses appears in the skies above the world, the god drops oracle. People born during this period will get God's marks on their bodies, influencing their character while being blessed and sheltered by the god.

The gem knocked from Kreel's sword sprouted a tree, named The Tree of World, on the peak of Henan Mountain. The tree released chaotic power that disturbed the mortals otherwise peaceful minds, causing the first of The Three Empires to be created.

The Glory Empire, situated close to the Tree of World, have the seeds of chaos implanted deep into their minds. Uncomfortable with the thought of their world being controlled by a god, they defy order and build Glory City on the mountain to rid themselves of Isus' control.

The Star Empire, based in the south, are located next to the Tree of Wisdom. It is said that people who lived near the tree are more intelligent, so many people flocked there to build up a city. They believe that the best way to live is to embrace a balance of order and chaos, creating the Star Empire to honour their faiths.

The Dark Empire is situated in the turbulent North Land, where night is much longer than day. It's citizens are firm believers in order and will do anything in their power to enforce it. They call their city of worship the City of Rage – a place they use to bath in the halo of divine order.

The chaos from the Tree of World eventually eroded the Zodiac Lord God's bodies, who were already drained from maintaining the seal of the Holy Blade. Doomed to enter an infinite sleep, they borrowed extra power from the mortal world, which resulted in them passing a part of the “original power” to the mortals. The power was harnessed and split into medals by the oracle, each holding the power of order.

When the Zodiac Lord Gods entered their sleep, the Tree of World withered, the City of Cloud collapsed, and the Blade of Chaos arrived in the mortal world. Legend has it that whoever gets the blade will have the power to rule the world, and that the only way to prevent chaos spreading is to gather enough medals of order to reawaken the Zodiacs.

A bloody storm is about to sweep the continent. NGames will be releasing more information on Pockie Saints soon.
