World of Aetaltis Kickstarter Is Up and Running!
Over three hundred years have passed since the fall of the Atlan Enclave, and the people of the Sea of Tears have finally brought order to their fractured world. Fledgling nations have grown into powerful kingdoms, thriving merchant states have re-established the old trade routes, and the priests of the Enaros have rebuilt their great temples. But in this time of hope, the shadow of an ancient evil is rising once again.
Deep beneath the surface of Aetaltis lurk the armies of the fallen god Endroren. For over a thousand years powerful mystic seals held Endroren and other forces of darkness at bay. An order of holy knights known as the Warders of Alantra created and maintained the seals, but when the Enclave fell, so too did many of the ancient orders—including the Warders. Now, after centuries of neglect, the holy seals are failing, and the dark ones have returned.
For the first time since the Age of Darkness, orcs, goblins, trolls, and a host of other fiendish monsters threaten the good people of the world. They strike with unrestrained cruelty, burning, killing, and destroying all that lies before them. The recently reborn holy orders have combined their divine strength with the temporal power of the new kingdoms to face this growing threat, but the dark ones are many and the defenders few.
But there is hope!
Lord Drakewyn of New Erinor has called upon the brave men and women of his land to take up arms against their common foe. In response, a small army of independent heroes known as adventurers have joined the fight. These stalwart men and women fight the battles ordinary soldiers cannot fight, go where the holy orders dare not go, and serve as beacons of hope in a world growing darker with each passing day. From hardened dwarven warriors to crafty cheebatan rogues, from fleet footed fey scouts to wizened Selenthean mages, these brave souls provide what ultimately may be the only protection for the people of this troubled land.
Will you join these brave adventurers in their quest? Will you put spell and blade to the test in defiance of the Dark Hordes? If so, if you have the courage to take on this burden for the good of all, perhaps there is still hope, and perhaps you will become the next…
…Champion of Aetaltis!
I'm getting to do a short story for this, so it should be fun!
