It has been a century since the skies have darkened. It is not as if it is pitch black but it has been cloudy all the time except for a few places that sometimes get sun. The world is a dirty place full of turmoil and the rulers have their hands full with battling crime. The people turn to heroes or independent warriors for help. Where the world cannot be dangerous enough, a couple of fiends seek the fragments of a powerful old world artifact that could give them immense power. Since the lord of Avanon himself has no time to take care of the fiends, he has hired a band of mismatched heroes to take care of the fiends. Among the fiends are bandits, the lord of Merindian and a dark wizard organisation. Now it will be a difficult job for the warriors as their enemies aren't some pushovers. Will the heroes succeed or will they themselves fall for the greed for power?

Avanon: A land crawling with bandits and other criminals. The people are in constant fear and the alway dusky sky doesn't make it any better. The safest parts of Avanon are the core cities that are heavily guarded as it has become difficult to maintain presents in villages and settlements. The landscape is mostly flat and forested. To the north are towering mountains. Weather: It is mostly humid during "daytime" while it gets a bit chilly at night time. This may be from the time before the skies darkened when Avanon was a scorching hot desert with little percipitation and over the last decades it has turned into a forest. The capital is Haragon and is a vast city with the royal palace in the middle.

The artifact: The artifact is a disc that is said to grant the owner nearly unlimited power. The last owner conquered many lands. Before his death, that emperor broke the disc into fragments and let the pieces be hidden in the at that time barely populated Avanon desert. Now fiends are out to retrieve the fragment and must be stopped.

Technology: In Avanon, there are many clockwork mechanical gadgets and the most advanced weaponry are either multi-shot crossbows or flintlock rifles. Some moving machines exist but mostly for transportation. The most common weapons remain swords, spears and axes.

Common warrior classes:

Marksman: Marksman normally wear light armor such as leather and use rifles or crossbows. For close combat they normally keep a dagger or a short sword.

Fighters: Fighters are general swordsmen with no specific special talents. They are however useful as support warriors.

Knights: Knights are slow, use longswords and heavy plated armor. They can take a lot of damage however their speed makes them easier targets.

Berserkers: Generally axemen who use speed and strength to gain an advantage. However lack of armor make the more vulnerable.

Purgers: Among the people purgers are known as violent brutes with oversized weapons who are out to kill magic users. It is partially true. Purgers tend to value strength over anything else and are most effective against magic users as their heavy weapons can break through magic barriers without application of their own magic. However the grave weakness of purgers is that they lack defense and lack speed. Purgers are more useful in destroying buildings and giant walls that for actual combat.

Battlemages: Battlemages are very useful in combat as they wear chain armor, can use swords and magic. They are neither fast nor slow and commonly function as healers on the battlefield.

Custom: You can make a custom class. However they must have weaknesses. The most significant the strength, the more significant the weakness.
