Two lore segments are in production; the first is the "War of the Father." (995 - 997 AE) before the game's start date of 1022 AE. Nidus along with his brother Chrondrius and the other house lords bring down their father believed to be driven mad after having murdered his own wife and killing two house lords and taking many of the nobility hostage in the Ancient capital city of Helios. The mountain citadel of the Astrian Empire.
The second is "The battle of broken storms" (973 AE), a pivotal moment when Emperor Daros ordered a retreat from the crumbling western flank of the Astrian Empire. A land between the Ogorial and the River of Ossos would become known as the "Fallen Kingdoms" This battle would decide the fate of the empire. The Southern Imperial troops, with the aid of Mercenary Cilicians, would have to hold for three nights. The battle would see Emperor Daros, his firstborn Tauro, and his youngest Harestius slain. Leaving only Pulioso, who struck a mortal wound to the Nephiric Horde's Ohnugdor. With the combined might the Nephir, Neniri, Phiric, Rakiri, Boskanar, Fronir, Alteri, and Nori Hordes could not shatter the defenders. Taurian, Lanium, and Esticlesian House troops arrived to shore up the defenses and help erect a series of fortifications that would become the shield of the Empire against the tremendous Western Threat that is the Nephiric Horde.
While our artist on the story for Bal Hammon (The Sunken King of Luminar) is on break. We're continuing to work
on more of the many characters and their deeply rooted stories. Bringing more soul and heart with a pinch of pain and despair! Much can be learned from these designs, pay close attention. As 1022 AE designs tell a very deep story about each of these characters. More than mere words can describe, yes we're just that good. ; >
Considering we've got no competition, that doesn't say much though! haha!
