Welcome to Ekra
A world shaped by faith, the four nations of Ekra have thrived for millennia. They are led by the Marked–kings and queens with supernatural abilities, possessing divine right and brandishing ancient blessings.
The faiths of Ekra each follow tenets of Nestham’s teachings, and include the militaristic Eternal Order, the selfless Musadim, peaceful Jinnam monks–and the mythical Wildborn.
Through the endless march of time, nations have lost their history, identity and power. The faiths have declined, consumed by tradition and political games, until the Wildborn have become lost to history, barely a myth told around campfires.
Ekra bears many scars and secrets, carrying tales of a long-ago war lost to history. These secrets have been repressed for centuries, but they may soon come to light, despite the wishes of those who fight to keep them hidden.
When a new Marked appears without a nation to inherit, church and state will collide in a power struggle that will determine the future of the continent.
"Remember where your loyalties lie."
