-The Hounds of War-
By Fionn Graham
Born the child of a small farmer in a quiet village,
few would have thought you’d rise to the top of the high chieftain’s army.
Few would have expected you’d gain influence over his lands and people.
Fewer still would have predicted you’d seize his power from under his feet, or defend him as his second in command.
You’ve lost contact with your poor farming family since joining the ranks of the Mac Conmara clan, which is embroiled in a war of strength and wits against their northern rivals.
The people of the clan are divided, the chieftain’s judgements are questioned and you may uncover a scandal that shakes him from his very throne.
Court and ally for power, fame or love
Cara, the chieftain’s daughter;
Diarmuid, a musician and warrior;
Ultan, a wealthy merchant and military captain;
Caelan, an expert in combat
Set in pre-Christian Celtic Ireland, in a land of clans, druids, and chaos
(Play as male, female, trans or cis)

A note from the author
Hey all! It’s been awhile, back with another game set in the mystical isle of Éire. This one, however, will be very different. I’ve been working on my writing and storytelling a lot since ‘The Brother’s War’ was released. This game will have a storyline with far more depth and development, everything listed above and more! I’m aiming at the moment for the 90,000 word mark and up.
I’d love to here your thoughts, as well as issues in continuity and coding.
Hope you enjoy,
