Intro

You awaken from the bitter cold with the expectation of a brave new world.

However, the horror brought to your drowsy eyes is that of your sister/brother, chained and impaled...

A foreign god descends from the skies and takes away your only kin.

Try as you might, the god will not let you wake, and throws you into a slumber full of nightmares.

When you come to, the world around you is not as you remember.

How long have you been asleep? Years...?

You embark on your journey alone, in search of the god who took everything from you...

And so your adventure begins.
