Set in The Valerian Isles, which are the jewels of the Obero Sea, the region once suffered many years of conflict which Dorgalua Oberyth eventually put to an end. Revered as the “Dynast-King,” he managed to bring peace and prosperity to Valeria for half a century. However, after his death a civil war eruprs and once again throws the isles into a bloody struggle for power between its three warring factions.
You will have the chance to follow Denam Pavel’s story, a young man who becomes caught in the midst of the bloodshed. Seeking a path of freedome and justice, even to achieve such noble goals will require him to make impossibly difficult decisions.
Taking control of a team of units on the battlefield, you muse use the turn-based combat system “to act strategically and gain the upper hand over their enemy.” Progression will reward you with the chance to recruit additional party members, experiment with various classes, weapons, magic and abilities, as well as making “key decisions at several instances in the story that will ultimately impact how events unfold.”
