The game storyline centers on the Courage Source. Dreamland was a peaceful place once, but this fairy tale world was turned upside-down when the Evil Fog brought about a deadly plague. Desperate to save themselves, the people of Dreamland were rewarded for their faith by the appearance of a huge branch of the life tree, known as the Courage Source. The branch pierced the cloud of death and gave the people a special gift: Hero Faith that can endow the brave with power. The people summoned heroes to take up arms and use the power of Hero Faith to defend their homeland from monstrous threats. War had come to Dreamland, but with it came hope.
