Discuss story of the game:

Odin Sphere is set on the fictional continent of Erion, which is divided into multiple nations scattered across the land. The two main nations are the warrior land of Ragnanival, and the forest-bound Fairy Kingdom of Ringford, separated by a wasteland that was once the kingdom of Valentine. At the game's opening, Ragnanival is ruled by the Demon Lord Odin, and Ringford is ruled by the Fairy Queen Elfaria with help from her nephew Melvin. The other nations include the neutral land of Titania; the volcano-bound Fire Kingdom ruled by the one male resident King Onyx; and the Netherworld, the land of the dead where natural crystals grow, ruled by the undead Queen Odette. The plot is driven by the tale of Armageddon, a foretold catastrophe in which Erion is destroyed and the survivors reign the new world.
