Fallen From Favor
Centuries ago, the people of Oethera pledged their allegiance to the Gods, but as the years passed, they grew lax in their faith and have since fallen from the Gods' Favor. Now, to save your people, you will act as their ambassador and compete to repair your relationship with the Gods.
Fight for Salvation
Assembled on the Altar, you will venture into unknown lands, traversing Mountains, Forests, Marshlands, and Wastelands in search of Ancient Relics to carry back to the Altar, offering them to the Gods for tokens of their Favor.
But remember, you are always at the whim of the Gods. As you explore Oethera, you will encounter vibrant characters, Charm the public to capture Settlement Banners, set devious Traps, use magic or strength to carve your path to victory, all the while contested by the other ambassadors who seek the same salvation.
