VIPER just may rule the world one day - if the Council of Thirty and the Supreme Serpent ever stop fighting for control and work together. Both would reshape the world in their image. Both would create soul-killing totalitarian regimes. Luckily for the rest of the world, VIPER is still torn by internal conflict.
However, there is one magical artifact out of legend that could force unity on the warring factions: the Serpent Lantern.
The quest for the Serpent Lantern will take you from the skyscrapers of Millennium City to a hidden jungle VIPER base. It's up to you to stop the Supreme Serpent from finding the lost Serpent Lantern and uniting VIPER for one deadly purpose.
