Hi everyone! You may have seen me in the interest check thread a few weeks ago, and I finally have the introductory chapter ready! It’s a little over 78k words in writing and coding so far as my first project using Choicescript.
Dawn of the Rebellion
Morrigan nods knowingly. “The bridge between the Celestial race and the rest of the races grows every day. They say the Crown, more importantly the Queen” their voice drops to a whisper, “created the Rifts for more purposes than to cripple magic-wielding criminals.”
In the great Kingdom of Roma, unease stirs. Ruthless Celestial queen, Queen Melitte, is determined to rule with an iron fist after slaughtering the true decedents of the Lost Gods. A hero must rise to knock Melitte off the throne, unravel the mystery of why the Lost Gods went quiet years before, and perhaps learn the truth of who you really are.
- As the hero, rise to the occasion and strategize to take the throne.
- Evade or befriend spies, assassins, and mysterious spirits.
- Wield magical weapons - each with a secret.
- Romance a variety of characters - ranging from druids and elves to demi-gods. (I’ll be incorporating some delicious tropes. You will also have the option to choose whether you would like to see sexually explicit scenes or not).
- Travel across multiple provinces, gathering allies and foes alike.
Some more details: The environment is Greco-Romanesque with a mix of magic similar to Faerie/Greek mythology. It’s a heavily character-based story. While skills and abilities are used throughout the game, the story will rely more on you using context clues, relationships, and the world around you for choosing answers rather than just boosting one stat. I want to create a dynamic environment and for you to not have to check your highest stats before every decision, but instead shaping details based on decisions. (There will still be some important pass/fail checks). It will remain a linear main story, with sub-stories branching.
At first, it was an ambitious idea, but I’ve cut it all down into a plan for a series rather than one book. I’ll be adding more information, such as ROs, or FAQ to this post if needed. I’d like to update about every week, but we’ll see how it goes!
