Lore for Dummies Part 12 - Glaive

Glaive is a Grangor warrior, the same race that adopted Koshka. It’s hinted that the two may have worked together as mercenaries, as the person who suggests Glaive for hire also recommends a female assassin. He is unmatched in skill with hunting, especially given the fact that he is blind, or at least wears a blindfold all the time. However, his lack of vision only heightened his other senses, which

Lore for Dummies Part 11 - Ringo

Since we covered a Carnie last week this week we will look at the other Carnie, the sharpshooter Ringo. Ringo lives in a world where magic thrives within the confines of the industrial city, and he puts on a show unlike any other while his fellow Carnies help themselves to the audience’s coinpurses. With his two guns, Faith and Reason, he never missed a target, no matter how small or

Lore for Dummies Part 10 - Ozo

This week the focus will be on Ozo. His lore doesn’t tell us anything about where he came from, it could be that he doesn’t know himself. We do know that he doesn’t have a mother, but whether she died or abandoned him is open to interpretation. Ozo is a Carnie, like Ringo. His act includes his acrobat wheel, and he makes up stories for fun in a Carnie game

Lore for Dummies Part 9 - Petal

Petal is a Meekos, which is a race of creatures that lives with and controls plants, gathering energy from sunlight. Their society is isolated but they seem to keep an eye on the outside world with the use of scouts. From what we can gather (heh) Petal is allowed to explore the outside world as a scout because she figured out how to channel sunlight offensively, making her munion pets

Lore for Dummies Part 8 - SAW

We touched on SAW last week in Koshka’s spotlight, so this week it’s his turn! SAW is a highly trained and a fairly mercenary soldier, using his skills to earn money instead of fighting for a cause. He trains himself by pummeling minions and pulling lane turrets back and forth, among other things, to keep himself in peak condition. When he took on Koshka she pounced on him, ripping the

Lore for Dummies Part 7 - Koshka

Koshka is a bit of a hub character on the Fold, she interacts with a lot of the storylines and other heroes simply because she is too curious and wild to stay in one place for too long. She was orphaned as a baby in a war between Grangors (Glaive’s people) and humans. A Grangor found her and raised her, teaching her how to hunt, leap, and hide. The Grangors

Lore for Dummies Part 6 - Krul

Krul is an undead warrior from a long-extinct culture. For reasons unknown to us he is cursed to eternal life, always remembering just enough of his past to cause pain at what he has lost. His emptiness drives him to search for a cure for his curse. All he wants is a way to die. We know from his past is that he was raised pretty much as a Viking,

Lore for Dummies 5 - Alpha

Alpha, also known as Daisy when she was alive, was the childhood friend of Kestrel. They were both trained in the Stormguard, with Kestrel being one year older. Kestrel took on a bit of a sisterly role, helping Daisy learn to manage the pain from being hit by counting them, something Alpha remembered in her resurrection. Daisy was killed by Krul. She fought well, but the undead soldier overcame her

Lore for Dummies part 4.5 - Corpus

Remember the goat that Kestrel killed? For some reason there were rumors that the goat had come back to life and was terrorizing the land. Perhaps a surge of excess magic from Julia’s death latched onto his body and hungered for revenge. It drained the corpses of animals and left strange symbols in fields. The fearful people in towns and cities all over started banding together in an attempt to

Lore for Dummies Part 4 - Kestrel

Kestrel is an elite Stormguard archer, trained to fight since she was a child. She grew up in the slums of a ruined city where the Storm Queen’s power held full sway. The townspeople were kept complacent by heavy taxes, taxes that were eased if the family had a child chosen for the Stormguard. This kept the people under the Storm Queen’s thumb, and made them less likely to rebel.
