A betrayal, a dying God
An ancient curse, a divine punishment.
A forsaken world suspended in time and buried in ashes.

In a nameless world, only a few survived the fall of God. Living in a hostile environment and feeding on what their barren land had to offer, four factions are bound to fight each other for survival. Victims of a terrible curse, these populations are condemned to sleepless nights, infertility, and doomed to die at the age of 40.

The only way to break the curse is to offer a Vestal, and a team of valiant warriors, as a sacrifice for a ritual lost in time: a bloody and harsh battle known as the War of Ascension.

Which faction will be able to win and secure the survival of their species? You decide!
