Record of Ragnarok is a story about an ethereal battleground to decide the fate of humanity.
Every 1000 years, a council of Gods vote on the fate of humanity and after millions of years, they have decided that humanity is ‘irredeemable’ and must be exterminated.
However, a plan is formed to give humanity one final chance to show their worth; a battle of champions.
13 gods will face off against 13 of the best human warriors in the world, winning seven of these fights and humanity will be saved.
