"These people, these superheroes, are exactly who we needed to defend our weak and innocent from the terrors that this world and the universe at large will throw at us.

Superman is our Hercules, Batman is our Odysseus. They're legendary, larger-than-life, and they are the defenders of our future.

Gone are the uncertainties of yesterday. They make me believe in Tomorrow. They are Gods among Men." - Excerpt from Justice League: Gods Among Men, by David Graves.​

Imagine a world like that. Where you lived among these heroes. Where alien visitors, superheroes, government conspiracies, and magic all changed the course of history. What a world to be alive in. What an amazing, yet very scary world.
Welcome supplicant.

Welcome to the world of Kroniki Arkadyiskis.

If you are here you are one of the chosen, selected by the fates since time immemorial to renew the struggle between good and evil, the rise of the Guardians who protect the world and the good folk within it heroically struggling against the darkness of the world in a quest for justice and setting things aright.

Or perhaps you heard a darker calling from within. A fell calling clutching at your soul with promises to awaken the nascent power that had lain dormant within all of your life. A chance to settle the score, to gain wealth, fame, power and the chance to rule over the minute plebeian hordes that deserve little more than to be ground beneath your boots.

In either case you are drawn towards a place of power while still young, the Sanctuary Hearts for the Guardians resting in beauteous glades, churches, temples or castles, the Overlords find themselves drawn into the darker places of the world, beshadowed citadels, towers of black iron, into the depths for subterranean citadels or even the hellish daemonic places, drawn to the hearts of your new Lair.

These places awaken at your first touch of the Heart of your Sanctuary or Lair, and your power begins to manifest, whether raw martial ability, magical talent or raw power of charisma and command people begin to flock to you, in the case of many guardians the Elves, Dwarves and other good folk and beings are drawn to your banner seeing something they want in what you have to offer. In the case of most Overlords less wholesome creatures are drawn or compelled into services, from Orcs and Goblins to the Dragon Ogres.

And while you, and your compatriots and destined enemies continue to grow in power, strength and will, the world turns as it always has.

Can you change the world? Or will you be it's next victim?
Avengarde is a thriving city stronghold in the sky. Those that inhabit the city are called ocell, a race of sturdy, winged people with a penchant for magic. Once a studious, artful society, the ocell expanded their presence over Aelora. Eventually, the era of The Sealed One had them fleeing to their stronghold, where they isolated themselves from the world.

As the events of The Sealed One came to pass, the ocell built themselves anew. In order to ensure their survival, they delved into the art of war. They picked up their spears and harnessed their magic for battle.

Centuries later, the ocell have deviated vastly from who they once were. Their political hierarchy is determined by their talents in magic, combat, and a head for fair judgement. Families arrange marriages to the most powerful suitors for a chance to create favorable heirs, trying to boost their status in society. Many have adopted a pride that breeds vanity and poisons the early teachings of Anareth, their first god.

The city of Avengarde seems like paradise. There is little poverty, the streets are clean, and the people are free. At a closer look, there are many flaws within its workings, both with its council and the people they rule.

"A mighty and grand fleet looming in space silently may be a mental image that inspires grandeur and awe, but the process of creating one is something that can seem titanic and terrifying. It is an undertaking that is sizable and time consuming, but like most things in life, it can be done if you set your mind to it and create a plan..."
