Sands of Destruction has the tell-tale signs of a traditional JRPG, but begins with a complete twist to the classic boy-turned-hero story. You are not the savior of the world. You are its destroyer. The anthropomorphic Ferals are the masters and enslavers of humanity, but a new threat emerges in the form of an unwitting country-boy, Kyrie. Without warning, Kyrie was overcome with power and wakes to find his entire village reduced to sand.
