An unlikely hero

In a sleepy hamlet, a young lad heads out on his village’s coming of age ceremony. Following a miraculous series of events, he discovers that he is the Luminary, the reincarnation of a legendary hero who saved the world eons ago.

To fulfil his destiny, he travels to the largest kingdom to learn more about what it means to be the Luminary. However, disaster strikes as he is branded as the “Darkspawn” by the king and must make a hasty retreat, with the kingdom’s forces in hot pursuit.

Now on the run, our intrepid adventurer must travel across the vast land of Erdrea, bringing together a group of comrades all united by their belief in the Luminary. Hounded at every turn by the king’s knights and other villains, it’s up to you to help our brave hero set things right!
