The Bane of Kreios is the next game project I am going to be working on.
It features a different lead character named Evelyn Primrose. She is an elf who runs a cafe in the capital of her people, the Elven nation of Rising Star. Being a former scout for the guardians of the Rising Star, she still holds some ties to the military despite being retired and not in active training.
The Elves of Rising Star hold to tradition. Their tradition dictates that gender roles are very important, casting men as above women and women as below men, and with fewer rights. Evelyn is one of the few women with power in the city, and is regularly battling the blatant sexism and discrimination. Certain members of the High Council would love to see her shop closed down, and for her to be ruined as an entrepreneur.
Her life begins to change when news of villages being attacked reaches her home city. Many elves suspect the human faction Iron Steed, who they recently signed a peace treaty with after reaching a stalemate in war. Others suspect other races and factions but nothing is certain just yet, for every village that gets attacked leaves no survivors, and only a pile of ashes.
As it turns out the last member of a dead race approaches Evelyn compelling her to return to action despite not being ready to. The remaining man of the Oros descent calls himself Revenant. The duo venture out to quell the threat, which turns out to be something from a nightmare. As the conflict escalates, former enemies make temporary allegiances, and the world is plunged into chaos. Though there is a primary conflict, there are also events unfolding on the fringe that also suggest other world altering events are to unfold.
Deep beneath the surface of Kreios, the Ghost Dwarves and the amphibian Aquastians are on the verge of entering yet another bloody war with one another.
