Today we will start with the topic right away and it is about the Graywalkers. Hopefully this will answer many questions about them and give you a clearer idea of what you are doing in the world. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOW THE GRAYWALKERS CAME TO BE

Before there were Graywalkers, there is the legend of the “The 36” or sometimes called “The Hidden Ones” or "The 36 Righteous Ones". These 36 were gifted individuals divinely blessed who had the destiny to protect or save mankind. Nobody really knows when they came into existence. It is simply known that they are the ones who influence change in the world to save it. They say many great men and women in history are among them, though there are those that have reached their destiny anonymously. It is also said that for the world to continue to exist, there should always be 36. 

There are 36 of them at one time, but not all of them are “active” or revealed. There are always many "Potentials" in the world. These are those who could be one of the 36 but who's journey to his destiny has not truly yet began. Sometimes, a member of the 36 may go through its life never discovering his or her destiny. In fact, for majority of known history, the 36 were never complete except in extreme circumstances. 

 Now you ask, how are The 36 connected to the Graywalkers. To answer that properly, let us first take a step back to 2000 years ago. 

It was said that Christ was not only one of The 36, he was actually the greatest among them. To prepare him in fulfilling his destiny, a vision and a task was given to the 3 Magi from Heaven to guide and protect him till his destiny is fulfilled. We know these 3 Magi more popularly as the 3 Kings: Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar. These 3 Persian wise astrologers were believed to be sorcerers, as what was normally thought of people of great intellect and knowledge at the time. 

The 3 Magi then accepted their mission and went off to find their charge. They traveled far and long and eventually found him with the help of the Star of Bethlehem. And after they met him at his house with his mother, they presented to him their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh with total worship, for they knew who he truly was and what he was meant to do. 

After that meeting, nobody really knows what happened to them. What people don’t know is that they never left him totally alone. They were constantly around hiding in the shadows, always protecting him from many dangers both mortal and supernatural. And though nobody knows what happened to the Child from the age of 12 to 30, it is rumored that the 3 Kings accompanied him on his journey to learn about the world and its people. It is also said that his journey was a quest to find the other members of the 36 of those times. They needed to be actively fulfilling their roles in preparation for him to fulfill his. 

 And so for years to come, everything was set into motion. By the time he was ready, he found the last 14 of the 36. One he sent out to spread the word, the other twelve were by his side. And so his destiny came to pass as he was nailed on the cross. And there he met The Last of the 36. He was the one to complete the circle as he pierced the side of Christ with his spear…and the destiny was fulfilled.

Of course, the Last of the 36 meant more than just a number. Legend says that Longinus the Centurion, was cursed to walk the earth till the second coming along with the other centurions that were at his side that day. This meant that he would live forever as the Last of the 36 till the end of time. What happens to him is of course another story for another day. 

Now, the 3 Magi had fulfilled their roles, or so they thought. It was clarified to them that what they have done was just the beginning of their task and to see if they were worthy of the responsibility. Their role was to continue being the guardians and guides of The 36 throughout history. In exchange, they were gifted with immortality and their true potential was awoken. They agreed but with one request, that they would do this without direct intervention from Heaven. They believed that man needed to find his own destiny and not only those guided by Heaven alone. An agreement came to pass and so were the Graywalkers born. 

The 36 were now named Graywalkers by the 3 because they now stood between the light of Heaven and the darkness of Hell, representing mankind while protecting them. 

So through the next 2000+ years, the 3 Magi worked again from the shadows, guiding and protecting the world’s Graywalkers. We know many of them as heroes, legends, prophets, geniuses and sometimes even gods. These men and women had made and changed history for the better ensuring our world’s survival. 

HOW DID THINGS COME TO BE NOW ?

And then the “Rupture” happened. This event is heavily connected to the Graywalkers, but we will not yet reveal how. Suffice to say, by the time of the Trinity war, the battle between Angels, Demons, Man…Majority of the 36 were all lost. 

But as it is known, there will always be The 36. There are many “Potentials” in the world, and when one is found, his destiny begins. As for the 3 Magi, suffice to say they are always around nearby. 

And this is where your story begins. You will be found and this is the start of your legend.

And there you have it folks. Hope you like it. If you have more questions or are confused with what was written please feel free to ask. Please take note that this is just a story, not a stance on any religion or belief.   

A special mention to Kerri, I was supposed to do the Combat Update but your questions made me realize that this was more important for today. 

As for announcements, we have a few:

  • Our Steam Greenlight has now gathered 2000 Yes Votes after 2 daysand we're now 22% on the way to the Top 100. We've also posted a link on the front page so that you can vote for us. 
  • As you all know, we are 22 days till the deadline and we are still only at 16%. On a good note, Kickspy trending shows we can still reach the goal. Now I don't know how reliable it is but there is an algorithm that says so and therefore a scenario that says it can happen. To do this though means we all have to work together to raise this number. We want this game to be made and we know you guys want this game to be made as well. We would like to ask you guys to help us. Some of you already are doing so, so we're asking the others who have not yet to do so.  
  • Please watch out for a link on dropbox. This will contain images that you can use to promote Graywalkers on your social networks. We are also making avatar pics for here on Kickstarter that you can use. We will also make a design for flyers if you guys want to make flyers and spread those around. If you guys have more ideas on how we can spread the word, please let me know. 
  • If anybody is in GDC Next today and the next few days, maybe you guys can spread the word there if you are going. 
  • As clarification, assuming we get Greenlit, we will be distributing Steam Keys for those who at least gets a digital download of the game ($20 and up). 
  • If anybody is friends with anybody from the press, please ask them to cover us. Also, for those who frequent forums, please continue to spread the word there for us.
