Play as a broken legend in a world ravaged by a war between two hostile superpowered factions set in a history alternative to our own. Will you betray centuries of secrecy in order to protect what you’ve grown attached to, or will you cave and lead the world down a path of ash?
It’s been 50 years since The War of Reformation, a 10 year conflict between two factions of the newly emerged augmented humans that devestated the world. Cities were destroyed, hundreds of millions died, and a whole continent was sunk. But since then the world has recovered, and the winning side evolved into The Praetorium, the de facto rulers of the new world order. The year is 2023, and tensions between the two superpowered factions are rising once again.
The whole world holds their breath wondering if there will be another mass slaughter.
You have sat on the sidelines of history for thousands of years, witnessing the birth of modern society. You watched, not even raising a finger, as Chicago was literally reduced to a smoking hole in the ground.
You could have stopped it, it was within your power, but you didn’t. Having lost touch with your humanity, you simply drifted, feeling nothing. But now you are thrust into a situation that forces you to take a stand. Will you reclaim your humanity, or will you finally fully cast it off, becoming something greater.
- Choose to play one of six possible legendary figures, each with their own challenges. The fight scenes will be customized for each fable in an attempt to make it more immersive.
- Battle figures of legendary might, your fights so destructive they alter the very landscape.
- Play as Male, Female, or Nonbinary and romance one of five possible RO’s, ranging from an expert sniper to a quasi-god.
- Train your disciple in one of three distinct fighting styles, and see how they grow under your intrsuction.
RO's (Slight Spoilers)
Name: Yoru Yamamoto
Description: Yoru is a snarky and assertive young japanese woman, but when you meet her she is in a rough place. You were tasked with her continued survival, so you must train her to weather the trials that are most certainly coming. Will you stick to a strictly professional relationship, or will you cultivate a friendship or maybe something more?
Name: Sumairah Khan
Description: Cruel but not unreasonable, Sumairah is the indestructible Iron Praetor, an unstoppable force of nature. She does not take no for an answer. She’s the only modern augmented with strength equal to yours, and she stopped aging in her mid twenties. The same as you. Will she be your greatest enemy, or will it blossom into something greater?
Name: Kaya Khumalo
Description: Kaya is The Dawn Praetor, able to levitate and bend light to her will. She killed the mother of your protégé and has been sent to hunt you down. However, she hates many of her peers and may be open to an agreement. She is timid and soft spoken, but will voice her strong convictions once she opens up. Will the two of you remain enemies or will you forge and unbreakable relationship?
Name: Kaizo Takemura
Description: Kaizo Takemura is a mercenary in every sense of the word. Carefree and holding no real allegiance to anything other than money, he is now stuck in the same situation as you. The two of you must work together to ensure your group’s survival, and maybe he will be able to overcome his trauma and form a real connection in the process.
Name: Jordan Werther
Description: A classic playboy with a chip on his shoulder. He has spent his life trying to atone for what his grandfather did. Will you be the key to the future he envisions, or will you destroy everything he is working towards?
Name: ???, AKA Red
Age: Presumably Around 70
Description: The new gen commander of The Elders. He immediately issued a surrender after Werther was defeated and he came to power, sparing many from the destruction of further conflict. He is like the wind, never staying in one place for more than a couple days. Despite his life coming in contact with so many others, no one truly knows him. Will you be the first?
Name: Attila the Hun
Description: With dark skin, impressive height, and snow-white hair, Atilla the Hun strikes an imposing figure. Their fiery personality clashes with those around them, and their anger issues sometimes flare up. But despite their standoffish attitude, you know they have good intentions. Another immoral and a part of the original task to seal Timur, your relationship is complicated. Will you remain on strange terms, rekindle a friendship, or develop something more?

Hello all, I’m Dr. Dense.
I’ve been a longtime lurker and have always wanted to try my hand at writing a COG myself, and after fiddling with the story and world for half a year I have finally decided it was ready to see the light of day. I have some minor experince in writing but this is my first real attempt at writing a huge project like this, and I’m super excited to start making headway. I am also a complete amatuer when it comes to coding, but with that being said I have tested the demo quite extensivly and don’t expect any problems, but we all know how these things go .
Have a good day all, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts
