The World of Oria is one filled with magic and wonders. It is a world inhabited by many races, and creatures, most prominent amongst them; The Elves, Dwarves, and Humans. But not everything in Oria is well and just, evil lurks in every shadow and just as magic can be used for good, it can be abused.
You play the Heir to Cordia, a county that once loomed large in the History of Men, but for centuries now subservient to the Emperor of Man.
The landscape of Oria is changing heavily, while the Empire of Man and the Elves of Ardast have enjoyed decades of peace, a tragedy forces each nation to make hard decisions for the good of their people.
And this is where you are. Making hard decisions and being haunted in the darkest of Nights.
Currently, it’s about 38k words long (prologue and Chapter 1 are currently finished), and I plan on updating every week (or every 2 weeks if I am busy)

All humanoid companions will be romanceable.
Antonius Fabianus (He/Him, 24)
The charismatic and honourable second born son of the Emperor, Antonius, is a man of Knightly Virtue. And while at first he may seem naive, gullible, and stupid, spending time with him, you will find out that brain and brawns can fit together. He is a muscular man with short black hair and blue eyes. He has reached an impressive height of 6’3
Tiberius Fabianus (He/Him, 25)
The polar opposite of his younger brother, Tiberius is the Heir to the Empire of Man, and quiet. He is neither charismatic nor bold, instead he prefers to sit and listen. Sometimes you can even catch him talking to himself. In appearance, he looks very similar to his younger brother, though unlike his younger brother, he is a man of thin almost sickly stature. He is just shy of 6 feet.
Galadia Atiana (She/Her, 22)
Galadia is a simple woman from a small village, and while most would think her illiterate and simple, she is quite the opposite. Not only has she learned to read and write, but it seems she is much stronger than anyone in her village. To the surprise of many, she is a well muscled woman of average height with brown hair and green eyes.
Irene (She/Her, ???)
Supposedly a peasant woman, Irene is a strange figure. She is of Elven Descent, with sharp ears and silver hair. Her Eyes are brown, with a tinge of gold within them, giving her a strange appearance. Aside from that, she makes quite the strange figure, she is sickly thin, only accentuated by her incredible height. She is 6’6 tall.

My main Inspiration comes from three different sources, that have led me on the path to make an Interactive Fiction game.
- Inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s LOTR
- GRRMs Asoiaf
- FatedFlames Kingdom and Empires
- As well as various real life historical Myths and Mythology (main Points of Inspiration were Homer and Virgilius versions of the Illiad, as well as Babylonian and Ancient Hellenistic Religion)
The game will at times contain, mention and address: Violence and Death
- I have just begun coding and so my expertise in coding a game is relatively low, expect a learning curve during the development of the game.
- I am also not a Native English Speaker, so there may be some slight mistakes, I have overlooked.
- The Prologue itself does not contain any choices
- Game will be ungenderlocked with the next update
