Sunlight and Sky

SUNLIGHT AND SKY

The Sky Sanctuary is nothing more than an ancient pile of lightning-blasted stones, a ruin long since lost to the wilds and the storms of time. But everything is built with purpose. There may be answers hidden amongst the rubble – or at least something valuable enough to make the expedition worth your while. Can you tame the grotesque menagerie, or will the wilderness claim you as well?

HEROES

Piper

Piper is the granddaughter of the Merchant Baron, Kendrick Maddox, and the sole heir to his trading empire. However, she is ill-prepared for his political plots.

Raised as a common merchant, Piper is being groomed for a position of considerable influence, and the responsibility is overwhelming. She is no longer sure of who she is or what she wants to be, but she'll have to figure it out quickly if she's going to take the lead.

Playable Classes: Ardent, Spiritualist, Archer

Rook

Rook is a former soldier with a deep sense of duty to the people of Adriel. Born and raised in the slums of Gelspar, he is especially loyal to the lower castes, whose concerns are often overlooked by the nobility.

A skilled fighter, Rook has vowed to do everything in his power to protect the city he calls home.

Playable Classes: Atlanta, Archer, Ardent

Laureat

Laureat is Adriels' foremost scholar of hearth crystals. Once a bright young student with a promising career, she is haunted by a deadly accident that destroyed her reputation ten years ago. She has since channeled her grief into a relentless pursuit of knowledge, attacking her research with a single-minded focus that has further distanced her from the rest of the scientific community.

Laureat has a profound faith in scientific inquiry, and is willing to do almost anything to gain access to the resources—and secrets—that have been denied to her.

Playable Classes: Druid, Tactician, Invoker

Rath

Rath has always been a man of many trades. Some know him as an information broker. Others know him as a smuggler. Those closest to him know him as a treasure hunter constantly searching for his next great adventure.

Happiest when sailing among the scattered lands of Axia, he plans to see everything this world has to offer, and dreams of one day having the means to explore the skies (and probe their mysteries) at his leisure.

Playable Classes: Rogue, Tactician, Warrior

STORY & SETTING

The Sky Sanctuary

Following the events of Gelspar’s crisis, it is evident to Kendrick that to wrestle control of Adriel from the Council, he will need to uncover their secrets. Elise has returned with news of a sanctuary in the sky, hidden away in a dense cloud of miasma. She reports that it used to be a facility of some sort, most likely under Council control. Today, the Sky Sanctuary is nothing more than an ancient pile of lightning-blasted stone, a ruin long since lost to the wilds and the storms of time. But the Sanctuary was once one of the most majestic buildings in Axia, a grand edifice constructed in the eye of a constant storm. The site remains one of the few places where the Miasma parts to reveal blue skies above.

The Headless Prince

Whatever used to be there has long since been destroyed, but perhaps, you might find something useful there and in the process, discover the identity, the history, and the fall of it's noble keeper.

Your Mission

Kendrick Maddox believes the Sky Sanctuary could hold the key to Adriel. He’s sending you to find out why the Council of Nobles had it built. There may be answers hidden amongst the rubble – or at least something valuable enough to make the expedition worth your while. Can you tame the grotesque menagerie, or will the wilderness claim you as well?
