War of Dawn
From a parallel world, the Valnr laid siege upon Earth seeking to claim the life force of every living creature. By the intervention of the Altr gods, select humans were empowered to stem their tide. Thus, the Corps of Scions came to be.
Over the course of a thousand years, the Corps has stood against their foe, locked away in the frozen Northern Reaches. They've tasted a costly victory, saw the Valnr's resurgence and remain, to this day, locked in a battle of attrition.
Young conscripts are forced out of their lives to join the ranks of the Scions. Who they were, what dreams they had matters not - they must face ahead and learn to endure the responsibility placed upon them.
For if the Corps' vigil falls, the gods themselves shall weep over the massacre that follows.
