"I dreamt such a dream. A long, never-ending dream."

--Unknown

Filgaia is dying. The deserts expand after the desolation caused by a five hundred year-old catastrophe. Demons made of steel and technology rise again, trying claim this world as their own. The secrets of the past stir, and those who lived them try to manipulate Filgaia's future to serve their own ends. It is a world filled with ruins from past ages, containing secrets to be found, and with those who would use those secrets to shake all existence.

The world of Lunar, orbiting Filgaia, is still abundant and rich in life because of the Goddess Althena's gift. However, the limits of her power have waned, and the Goddess has become withdrawn and cruel. Monsters known as Hellions have risen, and the Goddess' Seraphim cannot stop them alone. The new Dragonmaster has yet to stop this tide, and their world trembles at the rise of a new Lord of Calamity: Lucia, the Destroyer. Beyond Althena's Boundary, rumors come of a people beleaguered by a great monster and the sacrifices expected to defeat it.

Life on both of these worlds is precarious. The tides of war and dangers of the past threaten to shake the foundations of both. Kings, priests, and generals aren't prepared to handle these threats -- or they further them, knowingly and unknowingly.

The ones who can best deal with these dangers are Drifters: men and women who wander the world in search of ruins, for fame and glory, knowledge and wealth, answers and power. Their goals are their own, as are their reasons. Not all Drifters are heroes, though, and some only want the past's secrets for their own sake. Cut off from society, living day-to-day in Filgaia's badlands and Lunar's countryside, these adventurers may be the least likely to save the world that they walked away from.

They are, however, the people's best and last hope. This is their story.

Dream Chasers MUSH is a Japanese console RPG-themed game, which uses the Wild ARMS series and Xenogears as its thematic core.

Other themes may be incorporated to a lesser extent with time.
