CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY IN AN EXCITING STORY
Live a rich and stirring adventure driven by the choices you make along the branching storyline and many sub-quests.
Heryon was once a peaceful world. For years, the crystals gave the three realms of Astrya, Junor and Dehostra, the same access to powerful magic powers and created an harmonious balance. Then They came… They came above Junor first. In no time, their massive spaceship destroyed everything that was once a majestic capital city and they took possession of the realm.
Reynan, Grand General of Dehostra’s armies, took leadership for the defense of Heryon. He founded the Consortium and used all the magical power the crystals could give to launch the counterattack. Battles after battles, the Consortium pushed the invaders back and got them trapped into their landed spaceship transformed into an invincible fortress. Unable to break the siege, the enemy made a dreadful move: unleash of a terrible biological weapon people will soon call “The Metal Sickness”.
Now, 30 years later, the siege is still going on and Heryon lives in pain and in fear of a new open war.
Born and raised far away from the cities, Daryon is a hot-tempered young man who just joined the Royal Academy of Astrya. Naturally gifted, he learns very quickly the use of crystals, hoping to become soon a Royal Army Officer. But he doesn’t handle his emotions as well as he controls magic. He tends to overreact and that may change the course of his life.
Selen is the daughter of Roan, the man who led the survivors of Junor to Astrya where they now live as nomads. Shy princess of this landless people, she uses magic on her own very special way: playing music. Meeting Daryon will take her far away from her clan but closer to her roots.
Once a proud officer of the Astryan Royal Army, Fallon had his life torn apart when his brother died. Weakened by the pain, he lost himself in alcohol and gambling. Deeply indebted, he is now forced into smuggling forbidden technology in order to save his last and only property: his airship. Cynical but caring, he could become a precious ally to Daryon if he proves he can be trustworthy.
Infected by the Metal Sickness and amnesiac, the little girl got rejected by everyone and ended up in a camp of plague-bearers. Surprisingly, she resists the disease and turns out to be funny and full of life. When Daryon shows up, she seizes the opportunity to run away, eager to live and to find answers to the mystery of her story.
