Join Durane in his battle to liberate the neighbouring territories of Meluvet and Garalas and search for the truth about his identity.
The neighbouring nations of Meluvet and Garalas, once united as the grand Evancourt, are falling into dispute and the king of Meluvet, the once-loved King Agaman, is pressing his troops further and further into Garalasian territory in order to gain control of the land that belonged to his ancestors.
The story begins with a battle initiated by Meluvet on the border village of Seimu, a strategic point and vital to the Meluvetian army if it wishes to succeed in domination of Garalas. King Agaman's son, Durane, has been sent to lead the attack with his companion Eva.
The battle is a success and the soldiers return home. However, Durane is soon imprisoned for crimes he did not commit... or did he...?

Legion Saga was once considered one of, if not the greatest game for rm2k, and many people still think of it as a classic.
However, despite its warm reception, its popularity has declined over the years as rm2k users got more sophisticated. They cite its rtp graphics, short gameplay time, and melodramatic dialogue as faults.
