A great blacksm it h forged the shards of the meteor into nine superb weapons, each the best of it s kind.

Over millennia, countless wars were waged over the right to possess these weapons. The years of bloodshed only served to increase the potency of their magic, and soon a new legend grew; a legend of the supreme power that would be achieved by the one who could control all nine weapons of the Iron Phoenix .
