An original series by emperormiguel. Inspired by medieval fantasy epics like Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Record of Lodoss War, Berserk, and much more. A narrative-driven, adventure prequel series to the well-received fantasy spore adventure, The Sword and the Staff.

Set 50 years before The Sword and the Staff, the story is about a young boy and his struggle to find his purpose and place in a confusing world. Bewildered at the complications of life, and blind to a coming darkness the boy must discover his destiny in time to stop a dark prophecy from coming true before it destroys everything he's come to hold dear. Houses will clash, armies will battle, and tragedies shall strike as the true threat looms over the unsuspecting lands - an ancient artifact with the power to change the world has been prophesied to return, and now dark forces race to find it's pieces first.
The boy must gather a band of heroes and journey into the perilous path to collect and put together the one weapon that could change everything and make everything into nothing:
The Dark Crown

Playable Characters



The main character of this series is Garret (right): a Castelle Nobleman who sets out to save his House from a country at war. While the adventure series focuses on the main protagonist, it isn't limited to just one playable character. The story is also viewed from the perspective of different characters that the protagonist meets. The most prominent among them is Prince Theodore (left), Garret's most loyal friend, and the third prince of Valeria, who's mission it is to restore his kingdom from it's political decay over the years and to see the lands rise from the ashes of war to an age of peace.

Both are great warriors in their own right, but handle their challenges in different ways. Theodore is calm and favors good strategy over brute force; seeking peace and understanding wherever he can.
Garret is hot tempered and often finds the best offence the best defence. He will do anything to achieve his goals and destroy all those that dare stand in the way of his justice.

Witness as these two characters struggle, fight together, and grow alongside their companions to accomplish the ultimate quest of finding the Dark Crown.

Screenshots



Explore a world falling to war and ruin, crawling with dangers at every turn, daggers in every shadow, monsters by every fell. Helderia is a land untamed by peace, and with every fold of it's blood-filled corners reveals a new plot leading to a coming destruction, and the rebirth of an old-world doom.



Be part of an epic drama to find and destroy a dark relic from returning back to the world lest it falls into the wrong hands - and the world with it. A journey of five action-packed seasons exploring the nature of destiny, betrayal, corruption, and the failures of heroism.

Hey guys, emperormiguel here . It's been quite a while, and it looks like I had to create a new account in order to compensate my STEAM purchase (had a diskk copy before which I lost during my big break). Going on the moniker of ilovemigz from now on (in honnour of my email)

Anyways, enjoy you guys! Season 2 in full steam here! Hope to stick around longer this time!

I played through season 3 of S&TS just last night, I'm actively trying to catch up on the series before I play this (yes I know DC is a prequel but I'm too involved in S&TS right now.)

Thanks man. I might commission some art from her for my series some time (which is also sci-fi). The art looks incredible.

Take your time
Just be glad you weren't one of the early people who played this series, who had to wait weeks and sometimes MONTHS on end for a new episode .

The people currently caught up on the Dark Crown though... You have my condolences

I cheerfully greet your return, my lord.

I guess this is what Valthizar would have felt?

He was waiting for the return of the Dark Crown, just as I waited for you.

And I finally figured out that the shadow in season 1's title page was King Theodore's.

Poor old man.

He must have felt really sad when his best friend became the -- ( Sniped by the Dark One Archers )

BTW I have some questions.

1.

In season 1 episode 6, Valthizar said in "south" they call him as whisper of death.

Did he mean the western parts of Helderia? I was confused whether I should see this south as Kashetta or Helderia because currently many characters in DC including Ethan called Kashetta as the east.

2.

Is the screenshot with red background in episode page showing that cursed "Red Dawn"?

3.

What is Grimbold holding? I think Chop-Chop Boyz are holding small warhammers, but I can't really guess what that bird is holding. A pair of unique daggers? I don't know much about medieval western weapons.

I am currently waiting for episode 3 everyday, my leige...

1 - You caught me there, that's a mistake on my part. If he meant the south, then yes - he really means the east. It's all continuity errors, because everytime I reference Kashetta, IT MUST BE THE EAST, because that's what I wrote in the lore before designing the published map, so it's always confused me. My bad.
Because you brought that up I'm willing to part a little tidbit on the character if you wish - he comes from the Deadlands.

2 - At first it was just a theme of "foreboding", but yes in time it became an allegory for what is to come from the series finale...
Nice eye though dude, you should've made the series long before I did. You know far more than I do, and your imagination flows much faster too.

3 - They're just plain swords, just stylised to look "barbaric". His designed is heavily inspired by Kratos from God of War. As for the Chop-Chop Boyz, they all hold axes, though I wouldn't blame you too much for the mistake, it's all style I guess, so what one eye sees, another sees different. In the end if you encounter something in my series that looks like it can kill - kill it first

1.

Please write some lores about him! I really like Valthizar, for he is a total badass and as I said earlier, we are both looking for "The Dark Crown" lol

Avarack told Theodore and his brothers about his travels in the Deadlands before. I wonder if he engaged the necromancers there, though I think he didn't for he could have prepared a proper counter spell for Valthizar in the Valerian castle if he had the experience.

2.

It's an honor to hear such comments, my liege...


3.

I should just give up guessing about weapons lol

I am already following your instructions with fierce loyalty, my lord. So I had one hell of a fight in Tusk Island with all those freaky animals lol. And I really liked your idea about wildlings adapting to various environment

Speaking of wilding variants, can shadow magic affect wildling's colors? Tainted wildlings in TS&TS had purple eyes and red body. Are those the effect of corruption or did Dark ones just tainted wildlings with red body?

1 - Patience good audience, patience. His time is coming, and be assured that I will indeed write about him.
(And P.S. he's also present in The Sword and the Staff Series, though I dare not say which episode until this series is over )

2 - likewise young squire

3 - You'll actually get some info on tainting and corruption in the next episode (S2, Ep 3), just be patient for now young one.

And yes, those are the signs of corruption.

Yep, pretty much , the whole "medieval europe" is kinda made obvious as you progress through the story.
Hey, if it ain't a broke formula, why tamper?

What are Migz and why do you love them? (or better question) Have you considered using Dark Injection for any future adventures? Why or why not?
