Storyline

We only know how the story begins. You, the players, will complete it. As each player chooses their path, bestselling indie author Moira Katson will craft a living story that reflects the choices and allegiances of the player base. Factions will rise and fall, alliances will be made…and destroyed. As the enemy grows closer to their aim, players must work to discover their plans—and thwart them, with what little they have left. Choose your allies wisely, for someone in this city has called destruction down on it.

Enter the world of Iskendrun… As the city teeters on the brink of civil war, a new enemy has dropped a magical shroud around the city, sealing the inhabitants inside as it stalks the streets, sending creatures of shadow and night to drag the citizens into another world.

But to triumph over this darkness, you need allies…and any ally you court will gain you bitter enemies as the city searches for the dark magician and their allies. After all, who has summoned this enemy to the city? Who stands to benefit as Iskendrun falls?
