Ethernalia is the known world, the word Ethernalia can be used to described the entire world or to refer to the continent where all known nations are. No other nation has been found outside the continent, and the surrounding seas have not been explored much. All explorers either have been pulled back to land by sea monsters and deadly storms or they have never been seen again.
Essencereaper Ritual take place in the Western nations. In the South, there is the Imperium, a country based on imperalist and conquering ideals where slavery is permitted and encouraged. In the middle, the Merchant Cities, a wealthy nation where the 5 richest merchants of the 5 richest major cities rules in a Council. In the North, nordic clans of men, dwarves and orcs lives and fight each other. It is said the legendary white elves live in The North in a concilied underground city.
We are in the year 607 AEW, After the Entropic Wars, a series of catastrophic events caused by gods fighting and destroying each other, in times when gods were allowed to walk and take direct actions in the mundane planes. During that time, the very made of the mundane plane was distorted and surges of Entropy waves surged in many places, allowing entropic demons not only to enter the mundane plane but to remain on it. Several gods and minor deities were destroyed during those times and more than half of the population of Eternalia perished.
Essence Reaper Ritual is being developed using Unity Engine. Without Unity and its ever helpful broad community, our game would hardly have gone this far.
We are using Dialogue System produced by Pixel Crushers, which provides with a flexible dialogue system as well as a quests manager. A RPG without quests would not be a proper RPG!
Dialogue Manager through his Lua environment allows our Essence Reaper Ritual game to handle and save a wide range of variables.
