In Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome you play as a Lord Zetta a self proclaimed "badass freakin' overlord", who gets destroyed when his netherworld blows up.
The way Lord Zetta escapes being killed is sealing his soul inside the Sacred Tome. After Zetta's friends make jokes about how he is looking quite literary these days they help him restore his netherworld.
It was told to him that if he restores his netherworld he will get his body back. So through the course of the game Zetta's friends write in the tome that they want to make a netherworld for Zetta.
Then you have to go conquer that netherworld, but "How?" you ask, Zetta is just a book and can't even hold a sword let alone move. That's where the army creation aspect comes in.
In Makai Kingdom you can raise an army to take over the Netherworld. You only start with basic units like fighter, healer, and magic user, but that then turns into samurai, chef, scientist, you name it.
