In ancient times, the Cataclysm shattered the Tower of Eternity. Siel, the Lady of Time, gave her life to establish a massive Aetheric Field, and by these actions prevented Atreia from being destroyed outright. The Aetheric Field caused the ancient, sacred lands around the tower to be locked in stasis, and banished all who would threaten the tower's sanctity.
One thousand years after the Cataclysm, the Aetheric Field is shrinking. With the thawing of time, the lands have once again awakened, and the Cataclysm has slowly started to progress again and threaten the existence of all Atreia.
Ariel and Azphel, sensing the change in the unstable flow of Aether, have learned of a powerful artifact in the Tower that could save Atreia from the reawakened Cataclysm. However, using this artifact could destroy either Elysea or Asmodae. Unable to let go of their age-old hatred, both have ordered the complete destruction of the other's lands.
As Elyos and Asmodian forces clash around the Tower of Eternity, both armies have come to realize each other's intentions, and intensify their war of survival.
The hallowed grounds around the twin bases of the Tower of Eternity have awakened from their long slumber. Beasts not seen for a thousand years once again stir, and life in the days of the Cataclysm resumes.
For the Asmodians, Norsvold is a bitter reminder of a more complacent time, and the destruction that the Elyos invited by agreeing to peace with the Balaur. For the Elyos, Iluma represents the holiest of holy grounds, defiled by the Asmodians' barbaric paranoia and insistence on bloodshed.
And yet, there is wonder yet to be found here, and ancient secrets long forgotten - for within the Tower of Eternity itself, at the heart of all knowledge, exists a truth that will reshape Aion's grand creation forever.Iluma Norsvold
