Eretsu is a Living World!
When Golem Arcana was just a twinkle in our eye, one of the things that intrigued us - and a lot of you! - about creating a digitally enhanced tabletop game was the possibility of using gameplay results from actual games to inform the story and the world of the game.
We are excited to announce that we have sounded the trumpets of war with The Battle of Two Rock - our first Living World Story Scenario!
When you play a Living World Story Scenario in Golem Arcana, every choice you make in every encounter is automatically reported to the HBS servers which allows the ongoing story to reflect so much more than simply which faction won the most games. Conversations with characters, acceptance and completion of quests, battlefield deals of expediency and the moral choices you make have direct influence on the world of Eretsu.
For The Battle of Two Rock, you will pledge your 1000 point army to the cause of the mighty Dominion or the ancient Durani and claim victory for your faction and glory for yourself. The Durani Empire has sent an army through a hidden mountain pass in a surprise attack to recapture the Empire’s ancient city of Two Rock that was lost to the Great Khan’s army decades ago. If victorious, the Durani will open a new front in its war against the Gudanna Dominion. Holding the city will deal a heavy blow to the Empire’s invasion plans and turn the tide of the war in favor of the Dominion.
We are also happy to announce a new twitter feed dedicated to telling the stories from the battlefield. We encourage you to follow @HeraldofEretsu where you can watch the dispatches from the front and see how the battle unfolds.
Over the next two weeks, we hope that you will play The Battle of Two Rock at home or at your local game store, and help shape the world of Eretsu!
