The developers of the upcoming RPG Tyranny are looking for than just a game to play, but also, a world full of life and stories. To that end, they have been doing a string of stories to show the world and the people that live in it.
Their next story is titled “Commission”, below is a preface by Paul Kirsch:
“I previously introduced the Scarlet Chorus – one of the armies serving Kyros the Overlord – in my story Under New Management. This time around we have a very different military force in the spotlight: the elite Disfavored. I wanted readers to understand both of these armies from the perspective of soldiers (or conscripts) at the front lines. Though Tyranny has no lack of fascinating personalities at the highest levels of leadership, some of the most interesting stories are found in the rank and file.
I also wanted to offer a sense of what it means to serve within the Overlord’s organized hierarchy. Even though Terratus is a world where evil won, that doesn’t make it a world devoid of hope or ambition. As long as hope and ambition aligns with the will of an all-powerful tyrant, everyone should get along splendidly. Right?”
