Ys Book I & II is a first-person action RPG, in which you play the role of the noble Adol. In the first book, you must find the six Books of Ys, and in the second book, you must return them. Along the way you unravel a conspiracy far worse than anyone could imagine.
The land of Ys was a peaceful land, and prosperous. The land was ruled by two goddesses, and six priests. Magic was used for everything, from the essential, to the mundane. All this magic power came from a mysterious stone called the Black Pearl. The priests used this magic and created a new metal called Cleria, which in turn brought the land great riches. The peace and prosperity didn't last. A great evil came to the land soon after Cleria was developed. Thinking the Cleria had brought the evil, the priests buried it, and using their powers, raised the land of Ys into the sky. Fearing their downfall, the priests wrote the story into six books and passed them on to their descendents.
For 800 years, the land of Ys was peaceful. Then the Cleria was discovered. The lands below had great riches and peace, then the evil came again. This time, there may be some hope for the people of Ys. A wandering swordsman named Adol has come from across the sea, searching for the fabled "Books of Ys." With a pure heart, he searches for the books, and an end to the evil. ~ Chris Cuson, All Game Guide
