In EkÃ¶, players command the wraith-like armies of four long-dead brothers cursed to eternally wage war against one another in the blasted remnants of a once flourishing kingdom. "EkÃ¶" is the name of their father who actually did a pretty good job of running things while he was around. When he passed away, however, his four sons went to war against each other to seize the crown. They of course laid waste to the entire countryside, wrecking everything their father had built over the decades. Sickened by the death and destruction caused by his sons' power-lust, the spirit of EkÃ¶ condemned them to wage eternal war against one another fo all eternity.
