For generations the Turkiye Devleti and the Balt-Rhein Empire have stood in stern opposition to each other.

As the generals of Turkiye's council cry for war, Mahmut comes to discover the devious truth behind the assassination. Thus the young pasha's battle for his country, peace, and trust in his fellow man begins!
