There used to be a thread here, but it disappeared. I'll remake it as a reminder for me to actually finish this game, of course.
Will be updating the title screen with the one Lumen added a logo to when I stop being lazy.

is a psychological fantasy RPG game with multiple endings. It is my first serious project, and support will be very much appreciated. A child whose existence shrouds the world.
Something like that shouldn't have been left alive.
It's all just too cruel.
Genre: Psychological, fantasy, drama, thriller, some romance.
Sweet, sweet revenge. Or was it really revenge? They were dealing with a complete monster who killed innocent people in cold blood just to fulfill his own desires. Or did he really? The wife and son of one victim were determined to give the man who puts up an innocent facade a taste of his own medicine. And yet through this anger, it had awoken a new kind of twistedness among them. A mother who sacrificed her love for her own son just for revenge. A child who lost the life he could have had because of the lust for revenge.
And for that very purpose, he sought the Cole's Gate. A life-draining, world-ending artifact.
And that is where one story ends and another begins.
He will meet that person. And there will be no turning back. Ray ShrubaltAge:

???Alben Lapurett"Yes, I admit it. It is all true.
The governor of the City of Sydea, and Valoria's father. AreasThe City of Sydea
Sydea has been independent from the main capital of Nivandrox for around twenty years. The governor of the city is Governor Alben Lapurett, and due to how disastrously close the city is to the Forest of Death, it has caused much worry to him. The Forest of Death
The forest of death is the nickname of the place where the Cole's Gate resides. Due to its disastrous influence, many have suffered in this short time of over fifteen years. It is also the residence of its cult, lead by Cole, that possess the power to manipulate darkness.Affected Area
The Cole's Gate is said to be able to reduce the entire continent into a lifeless land mass in a mere century by absorbing the life energy of everything around it. So far, the area around it that has been destroyed it called the affected area, and nobody dares to step within these grounds. The Kingdom of Nivandrox
Nivandrox is a flourishing capital, led by King Anryens. They are located across the Forest of Death from Sydea, though there is a roundabout way around the Affected Area that allows messengers from both cities to make contact. King Anryens occasionally provides help to Governor Lapurett in an attempt to battle the Cole's Gate and its cult.
