CheatCC sayS: "Sacred 2 serves as a prequel to the original Sacred, taking place on the continent of Ancaria fully two millennia before the original. Much like the Greek myth of Prometheus, the story chronicles the monstrous fall out and horrific conflicts that stemmed from the act of the ethereal Seraphim race giving the secrets of T-Energy to the High Elves. The magical T-Energy, originally a source of unparalleled prosperity, was perverted by the splintering of the High Elven race. Warring factions began to arise, and as localized conflicts grew into all-consuming wars, other races stepped in to take advantage of the power vacuum. To make matters worse, the T-Energy has literally transformed the landscape and creatures of the continent into horrors, like some kind of ancient toxic waste."
