Advance your character in a unique, rich, classless, and level-less skill-based system. Struggle to survive in a harsh and violent world recently torn asunder by a magical apocalypse. Face challenges that bring new meaning to player versus environment.

Encounter natural, magical, and demonic creatures, forces of nature and gods, and other players seeking to advance their own agendas - or simply end yours.

Unlock mysteries of the ancient world that can lead to anything, from new skills and spells, to rare resources and valuable items. Discover haunted ruins, fantastic creatures, and deadly traps that can leave you questioning your sanity and your friends' loyalty.

Help restore the temples of the old world's gods, or create your own religion and will a new deity into existence. Spread your patron god's good nature across the world, drawing in support from others - or unleash hellish powers in their name, make others cower before your god's might, and reap fell rewards for your service.

The Ban Hammer Podcast

The guys over at TwonkHammer invited Forsaken Studios onto their weekly podcast, the Ban Hammer, to talk a bit about Embers of Caerus. Dave Belcher, Founder and Technical Director, and Mark Hope, Senior Writer, both joined them for the podcast.

Cue a really fun discussion about all aspects of Embers of Caerus; how the project started, where the project is going and a whole load of deep information on some of the planned core game systems. What was intended to be a short interview, followed by another segment, ended up a whopping 90 minutes of really great discussion. I think it's safe to say the crew of the Ban Hammer were converted, and rather excited about the project!

Tune in to hear everything that was discussed HERE. (The EoC segment starts at ~28m. Sorry, indiedb won't let us embed the podcast directly)

I reckon it would be awesome if this game was around for 5 years or so and then another great fire killed everybody and number 2 came out =)
