Four thousand years ago, the Dread Demon Lord Karakan was trapped beneath the world. But now, the four elemental seals are weakening, and his emergence is nigh. And only one person can stand between him and the end of the world – an orphaned teenage runaway, with mysterious origins and a dark past – you. Whisked out of your pitiful existence, you are transported to a flying school for magic, there to learn all you can in the few short years before it’s too late.
There's just one problem...
(Note: the following is a pretty big spoiler for something that’s a reasonable way into the beta/demo, but I think it’s quite important for understanding where I’m going to go with this. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read the next paragraph. If you do read it, please remember to hide the text when you’re talking about it below.)
There’s just one problem: you’re not actually the Chosen One. You’re not even a very good mage. Turns out there was a really big mix-up and now you’re going to have to rely on your own wits and human-level strength if you want to have a chance of surviving the next few years…
There are currently eight planned ROs (because I’m a masochist who didn’t learn anything from Totem Force).
A responsible, well-mannered young man, but does he have a secret rebellious streak?
(Male, Earth element, 2 years older than you.)
A very friendly young lady, Helena is adventurous but also grounded.
(Female, Fire element, 1 year older than you.)
An outgoing, flirtatious teenager who doesn’t seem to take anything seriously.
(Genderfluid, Water element, 1 year older than you.)
Smug rich boy who enjoys showing off his wealth and physical strength.
(Male, Fire element, same year as you.)
Hyperactive comic book fan who’s overjoyed to be in a magical world.
(Female, Air element, same year as you.)
Quiet but intelligent teenager with a fondness for undead.
(Agender, Earth element, same year as you.)
Mute girl who enjoys reading and has a strong sense of social justice.
(Female, Water element, 1 year younger than you.)
Nature loving boy with brightly-dyed hair and a penchant for picking up strays.
(Male, Air element, 1 year younger than you.)
These are all the characters who will have full romance arcs within the story; other characters may get minor romances, but I don’t want to promise anything.
The game contains a description of mental and to a lesser extent physical abuse (specifically from an abusive foster father).
If anyone has any questions or comments, please let me know. Thanks!
