Hi! I’m Mei, and I’m a long time lurker here. This is the first game I made, with an idea that have been staying in my head for a while. Currently it’s about (~30%, 3 Chapters, 20k Words) done. Hopefully I can update it at least once a month, but there maybe unexpected things coming up, so I’m unsure.
Here is some info:
You were the child of Lucia - the Voice of Anwar, and the most respected woman in the city-state of Ikril. You had been hoping to receive a mark just like your mother’s - a sigh that your god Anwar gifted to his favoured people. On your twentieth birthday, however, you received the mark from his greatest enemy, Zytrix, instead. You also learned that your mother was dead on that fateful day. With no one to protect you, you were sentenced to imprisonment under the command of your mother’s long-time rival, Lord Gabriel Ravenflight. Fortunately, your mother’s friend, Thalia Silverbrook, broke you out of prison because she promised your mother to look after you. In a strange turn of fate, you have met two other people too: Bumra, the disciple of Zytrix, and Amrakas, a Beastfolk who believed in balance of gods. Now you embarked on a journey together. During it, you can defeat dangerous foes, navigate the volatile relationship among your companions, and uncover ultimate secrets of the gods. Perhaps, if you play your cards right, you could end up deciding their fates.
Their introductions may contain spoilers. Please read at your own caution.
- Thalia Silverbrook
Your mother’s loyal friend and a true follower of Anwar, the Lord of Light. She was a few years older than you, and two of you had been good friends when she was your mother’s body guard. After hearing that you were in prison, she came rescuing you, but upon discovering that you actually bore Zytrix’s mark, she was torn. On one hand, she cared for you, but on the other, you were the enemy of her god. Still, she decided not to kill you outright, but to accomany you to an adventure. Perhaps you actions could help her make up her mind.
- Lord Gabriel Ravenflight
Your mother’s staunch opponent throughout the years when she was the Voice. Although his father was a Voice before your mother’s reign, he was not gifted with Anwar’s mark. Many called him Gabriel the Giftless as a way to mock him. He threw you in prison the moment he discovered you bore Zytrix’s mark, although later he claimed that it was just business. He was clever but ruthless in his ways, and he was very bitter when it came to the gods.
She was the disciple of Zytrix - Mistress of Night, and Anwar’s greatest rival. She respected raw power and clever scheming. Thalia and her were each other’s throats often, for they supported rival gods. Bumra despised the weak and the disciplined. When she wanted something, she would just get it, by hook or by crook. She was also a very beautiful woman, and her beauty was often used as a mean for an end.
One of the Beastfolks you rescued from a pack of wolves. He was surprisingly gentle for a giant, but upon knowing his story, you understood why. He thought himself a failure, and it was not without a good reason. Amrakas believed in the balance of both gods, as shadow did not exist without light, and vice-versa. He disliked Gabriel instantly because of his heathen ways.
Additional notes: yes, the companions are ROs, but be warned that they are all strong-willed people, so they do not always do what you want. It is possible that your belief and theirs do not align. They change their stance only if you play your cards right
