Hello everyone. Yes a WIP, another one.
Today I released the first version of my project : The Wight King.
Here’s the demo with, currently, the prologue. Which took me much more time than I thought it would.
So what does this game that comes out of the blue is talking about (be careful slightly spoilerish, though some things are kind of obvious):
[details=Summary]After a rough awakening in what you’ll find to be your own tomb, you manage to escape the tmplar order which was guarding your grave. Though that may have been obvious, you were in shock to learn that you were now undead. And not any undead to boot, the wight king, supreme lord of undeath, ultimate and most perfect undead being. You’ll have to assume your new role despite your origin and background and lead the undeath to new peaks or fall with everyone of them under the blades of the templars and their self-appointed king. Recruit allies on the way, some unexpected. Be a merciful and wise leader of men, or be a tyrant worse even the one that seeks your destruction. Master your new unnatural strength, the dark powers of necromancy and the mysterious power of The Will.
The path ro victory will be long and treacherous, for the age of darkness that have befallen all lands is one of great evils, of dangerous creatures and fearsome warriors.The great tides of war have begun rising again, and you may be the one to turn those tides when the time will come. But know that whatever happens, your will shall prevail. [/details]
There’s a bit too much lore for me to explain right now but I’ll at least situate the story :
This story happens during the age of darkness, that has last for a long time since the fall of the old world whose mistakes fractured the land and closed this world to close to the other worlds.
It’s taking place in a country west-northwest of the continent enclosed between the dragon jaws mountainous chains and the seas of peril… hospitable place to say the least. In the newly named holy kingdom of Arkadia.
(I’m currently at my College and can’t finish the topic right now, I’ll finish it tonight)
As usual, I’m waiting for your feedbacks, help from typo-slayers, better way to phrase some sentences or better words to use (English is not my native language, therefore despite being quite good in English I’m far from perfect.), heck even ideas are welcome as long as they are at least somewhat good and possible for this story. Don’t hesitate to voice your thoughts, post dank memes and ask questions, be it about lore, story or whatever, I’ll be glad to answer you. I would be very happy if some of you people make artworks of your character, of other characters, castles, about everything you want really.
The story is already more or less fleshed-out I already know where the story will go and have thought of some plot-branching, so plot ideas for middle-game can be useful but the end and beggining are already almost done (except for some branching I may not have thought of that could be interesting) likewise for the development of most characters.
