Overview

Anyone who is into a darker and grittier sort of fantasy: This sandbox story arc may be the plot for you. It will be an experiment, crossing a genre of monsters and magic with our version of Kushiel theme. In the end, it comes down to a clash between good and evil, between Angels and Demons. It will get epic, and we expect many possible angles for people to come in. There is the angle of the hunting party; there is the angle of those that will investigate and consult with educated capacities of the occult, seeking for answers and explanations for the disturbing phenomenon; there is the religious angle, people turning more and more to the temples, seeking help in prayer.

Will the Companions return to help their descendants? Or will they send champions to come to their aid?
