Please support me so we can make it happend!
You can play the prequel here:

This is only the beginning.
But just as you are many - I am but one.
And I am weak.
It was a dark dream, and I have been sleeping for way too long.
My spirit grew weak, my mind soft and fragile.
The one who is not me, now rules the land.
And he is growing stronger. Even as we speak.
At this moment of my story - I cannot overthrone him.
My world used to be beautiful.. And full of life. And balance.
But for centuries I have been rejecting my hate. My madness.
Burrowing it deeply, at the bottom of my existence.
One day, all that hate - became alive.
He hates me, just as strong as I love him.
But love, cannot bloom on soil made of hatred.
Eskalion is my name, but you also have to find his.
What has no name - cannot be tamed.
You are now the vector of my sins.
Purge them, find him, convince him to merge his heart with mine.
Until you do that - there is no escape for you,
and my world will remain shrouded and twisted,
Slowly bleeding into a reality of material - a world beyond.
Sounds cliché eh? Well hahaha It is not like you have a choice...
And meanwhile...
Welcome to Sorma'ksul. The Land of Rust and Moss.
And remember...


it's called prose, rght? yeah, I used to write too... but, the spark left me a long time ago. I can't even write right now. I hurt myself thinking and writing and working so hard for so long, so now, it's three years in the dark valley for me. Which I appreciate! ;) more fodder for writing later wahaha.

this is lovely! I love the imagery! You played Gyosseit, right? love this. it's so cool that you write poetry to your wife.

Thank you kindly my friend :) And check my newest video. Antumbra might be coming back after all. Just... a bit changed, and in a different form :)

Im downloading this and reproducing it on my speakers at full volume at 3:33 am.... Btw Eskallion is just a name that sounds cool, or does it have a deeper meaning?

When I was a kid, I used to write poems. When I've become teenager - I left the poetry and focused on poems without the rhymes. I never really wrote about love. Even when in fact, I did fall in love every 2-3 months hehe. But none of my poems were about love. But I did an exception, one and only time. 5 years ago, right before my wedding. I wrote a poem. About love. My love, to my soon-to-be-wife. That poem name is "Eskalion". The embodiment of my love to my wife, compressed, into one word. My own, personal definition of what love is.

You have a great deal of ability when it comes to poetry; your word choice is so fitting to to the intensity of the character and their eminence. I'm always impressed by your talent, and the way this explains the objective of the game so well.

Lovely piece of audio :)

Actually, 15 years ago I did have wrote and self-published a small tome of poetry. But in polish language only. I still write them from time to time. I am just not skilled enough in english to translate them. Thank you Morden!

This is going to be the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
