THE OVERHAUL HAS DROPPED!!!
Kingdoms and Empires is a low Isekai-fantasy setting where the protagonist of the story is customizable by you! You will choose their appearance, personality, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they cope with their mental health! You will be able to impact the story with your choices, choices that may come back to haunt you for better or worse. As the Crown Heir to the Kingdom of Argent, you will navigate childhood, court intrigue, fall in love, fight battles, wage war, and raise a family.
You will have close friends to aid you, a family that will support and love you, a solid foundation you can rely on…but can it rely on you?
The game is currently equipped with
Public Demo Wordcount: 85k
Patreon Demo Wordcount: 95k
The Codex will explain almost the entire Continent of Nareth! Keep progressing through the game and unlock new entries about different kingdoms or new enemy encounters!
This Bar ingame will give you a general look at how many of the characters feel about you, a brief description, and a close representation of how they would look using Artbreeder!
The path you take can and will change how you will interact with the world in Arc II, a Politician may be able to play the game of nobles well enough, but political knowledge will be useless for when you need to build a siege engine, the type an Engineer would be able to construct easily!
Hi all, here is the link to my Patreon. I’ve decided you create a Patreon to help support myself as I dedicate my time and energy into this world I’ve crafted. I am planning at least two games for Kingdoms and Empires , the current one expected to reach 1 million words , while the second one is estimated to reach half that. In order to reach that goal and finish in a prompt timeframe, I require your support to justify the massive amount of time I have spent pouring into this passion project of mine, while still being able to still pay my bills without endangering my current job. I hope in the future to focus on writing full-time, aided by my lovely patrons who helped make that possible for me. Helping support me will not only expedite my progress and updates, but will give me the breathing room to more carefully craft the world of Kingdoms and Empires , and make the whole journey feel much more complete and enjoyable! Thank you for the support!

First up we have the Silver Wolves, the Royal Guard of the Monarchs of Argent, the Heavy Infantry Unit designed to penetrate and fold enemy lines in open battle! During open battle, they use two-handed variants of Maces and Axes, both being held by the Silver Wolf pictured to showcase the weapons. The Mace is used to crush armored enemies and deliver blunt trauma to the body underneath the hard shell of armor. The Axe is used similarly, with a crucial difference: The Vertical Pointed head on the axe can be used to penetrate armor and deliver quick killing blows. In fact, due to the effectiveness of these weapons, they were slowly replacing the sword in Europe before the advent of firearms!
Then we have the Old King of Argent himself, Remiel!!!
We see him wearing the Blessed Silver Armor of Argent, the magical properties quite literally “lit up” due to him possessing the bloodline requiring to use the armor to it’s full benefit and potential! (WE HAVE IT TOO!) The Sword of Argent is also lit up, the stone glowing as well as the centerpiece stone in the Blessed Armor. Of course, with my overhaul happening and being written as we speak, I will change the armors color scheme ingame to what we see here! As for the actual Sword of Argent and the Argent Armor’s design, I wanted to keep a simple, more realistic design due to functionality and to disregard the “Rule of Cool” that has been prevalent thus far in media. Reason being is because keeping my work grounded is is important to me, as is the weapons and armor used. Practicality in my opinion outweighs the fantastical qualities of let us say the Daedric Armor used in Skyrim.
These were weapons and armor that saw real use in battle, and terrified enemies. Just wanted to explain the reasoning and design choices behind the armor and weapons when some people may have been expecting some anime-esque drawings lol!
This is the most common of the V’era, tall, powerful, with a viscous hide that isn’t instantly noticed…at times it acts erratic, unpredictable, and dogged until its prey has been killed. It uses its long jagged claws to maim and shred opponents apart. Most concerning is the armor it wears. The style is unknown to the Empire or the Kingdoms, further darkening the suspicions of their origins. With the elongated arms and hollow eyes or the skeletal appearance, one would assume it to be slow or weak, further adding to the reasons as to why the V’era is able to overpower and kill.
One of the rarest variants of the V’era menace with an elongated conical cranium. Fast, powerful, with excessively sharp claws and an even sharper protruding elblow, this is the most shrouded Variant. From what little is known of the V’era is that while being a little taller than the First Variant, this V’era is far more heavier and stronger. The claws are used to grip the earth to propel themselves even quicker, and once they’re close enough, their legs generate force enough to leap incredible distances at their targets for the kill. Unlike the First Variant, this V’era kills efficiently, with finesse, and without mercy.
The rarest, but most well-known V’eraVariant that is hushed about near warm fires and children’s beds. These are specifically called Demons. It is sighted once decades at a time, perhaps longer. The sheer destruction and terror this Demon brings about are mentally scarring, enough so that stories and nighttime horror tales still keep children wide awake at night. It is thought to be a herald of doom, with wars and famines following in its heels. Easily towering over a man, with reaching arms that could tear and rip a knight in two, the easiest way to kill one of these terrifying Demons is with a noble with a Blessed Weapon, and sometimes that is not enough. Only the users with complete sets of Blessed Armors can reliably and easily kill them. It has been recorded only once in history when dozens of Enchanted Weapon users were able to successfully slay a Demon of the Third Variant. This is the Demon that attacks your caravan.
This is the portrait of the princess who was married to King Garland the Conqueror’s son after he took over her kingdom and killed her father, the previous King of Moresaine.
