Storyline

Under the land of Sedia lies a world entirely it's own, untouched by civilized hands and mysterious in origins. You are an average under-paid soldier sent on a suicide quest like many before you to investigate and retrieve the last remnant shard of the Everspark, a relic of magic said to have enough power to bring the world to it's knees in destruction and end quickly the Age of Man. Maybe you'll get a raise.


How To Play

Delve into the depths of the dungeons to retrieve the Everspark. In order to level up you kill enemies by walking into them. Strength makes your regular attacks stronger. Dexterity gives you the chance to dodge attacks. Constitution gives you damage reduction on all attacks. Wisdom gives you more points when you level to increase stats. Intelligence increases your skill damage. Luck increases the amount of loot that you find. Charisma increases the chance to cause enemies to flee.
