Below details about the Expansion and dedicated Trailer.

As part of an ongoing effort to further bolster and expand Vagrus – The Riven Realms, Lost Pilgrims has announced the release of the game’s first major expansion: Sunfire and Moonshadow for Q3, 2023. The expansion will be paid content and introduces the Bronze Desert, a new, vast region to explore with a swathe of new settlements, new enemies to conquer, new stories to be a part of, a large cast of characters, and new quests to complete through which the vagrus may make their mark on the continent of Xeryn. The expansion’s store page is available for viewing and is ready to be wishlisted on SteamGOG, and Epic.

Bringing such an expansion to a strategy RPG already known for its extensive lore and long, intricate quests, Sunfire and Moonshadow will expand on earlier themes and factions already fully fleshed out in its base game. It will also introduce a new, central conflict for players to focus on amid other stories that diverge from it, sending players all over the region and back to their favorite locations in the vanilla game. A colorful glimpse into the central themes governing the region follows below:

Occupying the northwestern corner of the continent of Xeryn, a desert older than the Calamity lies between the Brown Mountains and the River Lethe: the Bronze Desert. It is a realm torn by war in more than one way. The Empire rallies its immense legions here, sending them north toward the Green Continent to lay waste to its lush lands while the elite Chimera Legion remains behind to oversee this arid staging ground. Deep in the desert, however, lurks a different threat – that of the Ahari. Birthed by the native Bandul and tempered by their unwillingness to yield in the face of Imperial oppression, the Ahari seek to win back their sacred oases and holy sites, fighting an impossible campaign of terror. Amidst it all are the Handjari, sworn allies of the Empire and stewards of the greatest city in all the Bronze Desert – Kabur, the Jewel of the North.

The stage is set, the stakes are high. Who will you, a mere vagrus, align yourself with? The mysterious Ahari and their Sun God or the cruel Chimera Legion and their ruthlessly pragmatic leader, the Legate? Your decisions will shape the fate of the region writ large, paving the way for a new, uncertain future throughout the Realms.
