Chess is a board game of skill. It is played on a board consisting of 32 black spaces and 32 white spaces. This board's design is based off the original layout of the universe. Chess is the way mankind had integrated the board into their lives.
Lord Loss and Chess Edit
Lord Loss became fixated with Chess ever since he saw Drust, a Druid, playing it on the original board. He took the board from Drust's dead body to play on. Soon after, he discovered some of its powers. He became a very skilled player, and he is usually eager to play the game.
Bartholomew Garadex Edit
Bartholomew Garadex, a distant member of the Grady family and a powerful magician, found Lord Loss and his love of Chess. He played in a series of simple games. Each game he won, a werewolf in his family would be reverted back to a human. If Bartholomew lost however, he would lose his soul. In the end, old Bartholomew died of natural causes and left the secrets of his challenge in a magically-coded diary.
The New Challenge Edit
A descendent of Bartholomew managed to decode his diary. He then challenged Lord Loss to a game, hoping to pick up the challenge where Bartholomew left off to save his child from becoming a werewolf. However, Lord Loss wanted to spice up the rules a bit to make the challenge more appealing to him. First, two people were needed for the challenge. One person would face Lord Loss at chess while another would fight Lord Loss' familiars. The chess game would be a best 3-of-5 match in which all five games are played simultaneously. If either of the two challengers fail their task, both challengers and the werewolf they wanted to save would be slaughtered.
