Welcome to Mirrah! A prospering medieval land ripe for any man or woman to make their mark on the world. As long as your a dark elf!
For everyone else, its a land of torment and war. For the last eight years, the dark elves have waged war on the humans, and at this point, victory is all but assured. Our heroes disappeared when we needed them most and now everyone is just waiting for the dark elves to decide which race is next.
This story however doesn’t have you defeating an entire race and saving the day like a baddass hero however. I told you, our lands heroes are gone. You take the role of a human, freshly knighted, (out of necessity), trying to survive in hiding with some of the last of your kind. When a detective comes knocking asking for help, you find yourself in a situation that’ll have you dying to get out of! Get to meet funny people doing horrible things. Or maybe horrible people doing funny thing? Either way, being stuck anywhere near these people is sure to make your life hell.
And after all the dust is settled and you’ve fought, talked, or thought your way through anything or anyone that got in your way, maybe you’ll have the answer to the big question in this story.
“What makes someone a monster?”
Hi everyone! I’ve been a lurker on this site for probably about two or so years now, and have only recently even made an account. Ever since I read Mecha Ace years back I’ve wanted to make my own game, but wanted a very inspired story. Flash to 2018 when I’ve been playing dnd with my buddies for awhile now, and it hits me. “Hey, i already have a setting, characters that we’ve worked on for months at least. all I really need is a good plot.” Well after about a month of thinking I figured out what that plot is.
So I’ve been working on this project for a bit now, and although it may be a bit soon to be posting anything about it, I came to the conclusion that if there’s any problems be it spelling or just general feel of the story, I want to know sooner rather than later.
Here’s the link to the demo: Monster Hunt
A few things to note before you jump in.
Firstly its really short, about 5800 words at the moment. What I really wanted to get out there was the feel that i’m going for and feedback on the writing style. I have a very dogmatic mind so any nitpicking on anything you feel should be looked at please feel free to bring it up. Be mean if you have to if i’m not picking up what your putting down. Don’t worry i’m a big boy I can take it.
Secondly, and probably more importantly, this game has horrible people in it. I want to stress that I don’t share all the views of the characters in this book, as some of them are messed up. Now personally, i’m hard to offend or bug in general, but even I know that this book needs some trigger warnings. Every character in this book has problems, ranging from a horrible mouth to alcoholism to sexual abuse to being an actual murderer. If your easily put off from anything like those, you should probably steer clear.
Alrighty, now that’s all said and done, time for something I think you’ll like. The main cast is rather small and each one of them are romanceable. So without further ado here’s a small description for each of them. Keep in mind, I’m only posting the romanceable characters here, there are others, but besides Clive, you wont see them as often.
Isabel Deckard- An investigator currently working on a series of murders that has taken her to your doorstep. With fair skin, dark brown hair that comes down to her chin, and a slight build, shes not the most intimidating of the cast, but like most of the others, she’s got her secrets that make just as deadly as the rest. “Of course, there’s always a catch.”
Victor Moran- A mad scientist who cant seem to stop putting himself in harms way. His genius intellect is only matched by his insanity and his temper, and with his morals out the window, he is a danger to all he comes across. Generally off putting, what with the dark blue skin, demon esque features, and mechanical parts, he understands the racism you face, but that doesn’t matter. Fear is a tool to be used on the masses. “What does it take to be a god Clive?”
Tiri Drosera- Part of a tribal race of plant people, Tiri and her pet plant dog are a force to be reckoned with. The Forest is her home, and god help anyone who dares enter while she watches over. With a strange color pattern of white skin and silver hair, she certainly sticks out in a crowd, never mind the wood and leather combo outfit. Not that it matters what anyone else thinks, can’t be offended by someone who’s dead. " “Dog could smell your stench from a mile away. Look at him, his eyes are still tearing up.”
Red- The last hero known to be alive. Grief stricken and depressed, Red is currently just following orders from his wicked master, waiting for someone to come along and end his suffering… or to show him how to live again. With an injured leg, a missing finger, and a missing eye, covered by a torn up piece of cloth, it’s surprising to find that he is one of the deadliest people in Mirrah, and beneath his pretty boy face, what with the blue eye and perfect half elf skin and short hair, there’s a dark side to him just waiting to be unleashed. “I’m so sorry… for everything.”
Elle- Slave knight to a powerful dark elf lord, Elle hunts, not because she want’s to, but because she doesn’t know how to think for herself. Fast as lightning with her dwarven forged rapier, she might be one of the few who can take on Red in a fair fight. With ash black skin and boy cut silver hair, she has an air of nobility to her, but her perfect posture didn’t come from the slave camps… “A jobs a job. I was told not to worry about the why.”
Joey Freeman- A fire genasi with good looks and a permanent grin, Joey is the only one of our cast who kills, not for any higher purpose or goal. Not because someone told him to or payed him to, but because he enjoys it. A freed pit fighter from the desert wildlands, Joey survived orc gladiators and giant chimeras for a crowd, how is this hunt any different? “It’s always more fun when they bite back.”
