The Story

Vant Hu'l is Cursed

Dragged to the center of a wasteland by a ruthless malevolence, the legendary warrior discovers a cavern filled with devious riddles and fiendish traps. Upon solving the labyrinth, he is confronted by a hideous creature. A beast with unimaginable abilities. A being of unspeakable evil… Death. Without a shred of clemency, the demigod presents Vant with a choice: do his sinister bidding out in the world, or suffer an eternity of horrifying torment. Thus begins Vant’s quest out of the badlands, through the hostile wilderness, into the clutches of twisted townships, and finally toward conflict with the vile stewards of a corrupted civilization.

But Vant will not go it alone. In the midst of his travels, he develops an unlikely companionship with a clever and venturesome teenage girl, the expert survivalist Skii Tavee. They also form an alliance with two newfound—but questionable—companions: Kram Grammie, the sneaky con man who is as crafty as he is klepto, and an off-kilter eccentric bizarrely known as The World’s Worst Magician. United, they set out to dispatch their foes, rescue the innocents caught in the crossfire, and unite the forces of a world gone astray, all while reconciling with their own haunting pasts.


The Characters

Journey alongside the devious and the devoted, the daring and the damned.

Vant Hu'l: Warrior of legend. Liberator of the oppressed. Defender of rights. His might in battle is matched only by his unrelenting will, but with this ferocity comes an unpredictability… and a destiny sculpted by eras passed teetering on the brink.

Skii Tavee: A survivalist gifted well beyond her years with unmatched prowess in tracking, stealth, and hunting. Yet, her fierce independence has made her an outcast, a transient without a purpose.

Kram Grammie: A crafty companion, with fingers as loose as his tongue. He’ll just as easy steal a heart as he will a wallet. And with a flexible moral code comes questionable fidelity—just where do his loyalties lay?

Death: A being of mercy. A merciless being. Cruelty is a means to an end for the demigod of darkness.

The World's Worst Magician: Dingleborfs aplenty, in the land of Chiggy Chooboo. How can cherry dreams make rascal stallions? One can only imagine! So do!

Dawnrier: She never forgets her manners. A true hostess, Dawnrier will divine to fulfill your every whim. But under the mask, is there a smile, or a scowl?

The Mayor: He keeps the peace where peace can’t be kept. But is this a duty, to him, or a game?

Redemption: An enigmatic being at one with the shadows. His tech is as impressive as it is terrifying.

Clodd & Blauth: Garbage men with noses for sniffing out treasure. Even though they have no noses.

The World

Explore a land that is equal parts perilous, unpredictabble, and awe-inspiring.

Land Escape

After a massive worldly shift, cities and towns turned insular to shared beliefs. Those within the walls of a dogmatic township banded together to pursue the mysteries of life itself. The last dogmatic-free township, Land Escape is a haven for those who wish to pursue a peaceful existence. Massive fortress walls circle a spectacular city to protect it from the dangers of the dogmatic, and the threats of the wild.

The Outlands

A rugged and wild land stretches outside the townships, filled with the dangers of the harsh terrain. And, most terrifying are the vicious tribes of nomads who reject all dogma… and rarely take prisoners.

Crash Town

A last ditch destination for the disenfranchised, Cash Town—long since known by the locals as Crash Town—is the ultimate sanctuary of sin. The prevalent dogmatic belief is that pleasure is the key to life, and all those who step inside run the risk of being seduced… permanently.
