Adventure in Zemuria
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel takes place in the Zemurian Continent seen in the earlier game Trails in the Sky, which is dominated by the Erebonian Empire.

But the empire is troubled by internal strife, as commoners resent the way they are governed by the nobility. Seventeen-year-old cadet Rean Schwarzer, along with eight of his classmates, join the military academy only to become immediately caught up in this conflict. Which side will they pick, and to what corners of the continent will their quest carry them...?
