The Holy City of Arteria
This is a city-state that is the high seat of the Septian Church, the religion that worships Aidios, the goddess of the sky. It is located in heart of the Zemuria continent, and it is said to be a holy land where the church’s many followers and clergy assemble.
Among others, there are three factions within the Septian Church: The Congregation for Divine Worship, which survives the rites and worship within the church, the Congregation for the Sacraments, in which the Gralsritter belong, and the Papal Guard that protect the city-state itself.
A secret organization of knights within the Septian Church that specializes in the recovery of dangerous Artifacts.
They are made up of about a thousand people, as knights and squires, and beyond them are twelve special knights known as the Dominion. Kevin and Ries are a knight and squire. Furthermore, they also have use of the Merkahbah, special stealth-capable high speed airships.
The Reinford Group
The Reinford Company is Erebonia’s larget heavy-industry manufacturer.
Originally specializing in the production of gunpowder, heavy artillery, and heavy weapons, with the invention of orbments they expanded their work to include orbal guns and orbal weaponry on top of orbal railroads and airships.
Along with their competitor, the Verne Group from Calvard, they have grown to be one of the two largest orbal manufacturers in the world.
The Lucitania is the long-awaited luxury cruise-liner manufactured by the Reinford Group.
Boasting a 120 arge length, this ship is four times the length of any of the cruise liners from Liberl, and travels at a cruising speed of 700 CE/h (whereas the Liberl cruise-liners travel at 900 CE/h). On board, there is a grand exhibition room, a party hall, casino, and library. There, many nobles and the wealthy come together for a masquerade ball.
The Arca of Recluse
This mysterious Artifact was fished out of Lake Valleria after the destruction of Liber-Ark six months ago.
It is big enough to fit in the palm of a person’s hand and has intricate etchings all over its body. It was glowing when it was salvaged from the lake, but since then its power has disappeared.
The Characters of Sora no Kiseki Return to the Stage
This time, the game follows Kevin and Ries from Arteria.
Those who played the previous title will get full enjoyment out of this game, but the story of this particular episode is standalone so it does not require playing the other games to fully enjoy it.
