Main Story

One day they saw it for the first time – far out to the west at the horizon of the Great Ocean. A dark and mysterious FOG. It was slowly approaching their home, the beautiful and lonely island Zerados in the Great Ocean and the home of many people like the Xamas, Yamati, Yadeles and Xonda.

Slowly it crawled forward until it finally reached their island. What is in or behind The FOG is unknown. Nobody that ever went into The FOG to explore it – courageous warriors, wise elders and even some of their leaders – or who gotten swallowed by it, ever returned.

Bit by bit the FOG crawled over the huge island in the last weeks and swallowed everything and everyone on its path without mercy. All people were forced to leave their homes and they all were driven to the very east of the island. There in the last town Zuarell by the Xappalis Bay all people built hastily boats to hopefully still escape the FOG. Their last and only hope lies in an ancient tale, which over generations and centuries has been passed on about their original home Yamagi, the magic land. Somewhere very far to the east it shall lie.

They thought they had a few days left in which they could embark organized. But suddenly the FOG speeds up and everyone – leaders, wise men, sailors, warriors and the commoners – just start running in pure panic and regardless of others over the beach towards the boats to hopefully somehow reach the boats before the FOG reaches them.

Can you help Yara, Xug, Jassiva, Qelm, Xiri and the others to reach their boats?

Hopefully as many of them as possible can be saved. It is on you …

Roxira (Commoner)

Roxira arrived in Zuarell 10 days ago together with her parents, after the FOG had driven them out of their home Londaryn. She was just getting last provisions for the great crossing when suddenly great fear came up because of the FOGs speeding up and people started running in pure panic towards the boats on the beach. With shock she dropped her basket and started running as well and now hopes desperately that her parents are also on their way and that they all will reach the boats in time. Suddenly she sees the packed beach directly ahead of her and gets even more desperate…

Dayark (Sailor)

Dayark just thought about how strange everything currently is. Until 3 weeks ago he was a simple tanner and fisher in a small town close to Zuarell, where he spent all his past life. But then The FOG came, and nothing is anymore like it used to be. In all their despair the leaders decided to build boats in Zuarell for the great crossing. For that they were looking for sailors and he volunteered for it right away. For over 2 weeks now he trained daily for nothing else, while the boats were being build and equipped.

Now, while collecting driftwood on the beach, he suddenly startled by the loud and almost panic screaming from Zuarell. When looking over there he saw a large crowd of people running towards himself … and in the back he saw the FOG that seemed to speed up. Fear seized him, but he also knew what he had to do. He dropped the driftwood and ran as fast as he could towards the boats. He knew he is one of the few closer to the boats and that he needed to get one of the ships ready to sail for them to have a chance to escape.

This was the first ever visual interpretation of what is happening on the island because of The FOG.

It is set in a historical setting and was painted by my friend Uli in October 2019.

Thank you so much!!
