The Broken Hourglass Lore Update
6:55 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Planewalker Games recently updated their website with new lore for their upcoming RPG, The Broken Hourglass. The lore encompasses an analysis of the Elves of the Tolmiran Empire and the first chapter of a serial story set within the game universe. The Broken Hourglass will feature a new CRPG engine developed by Planewalker Games, a 2D isometric viewpoint reminiscent of classics in the genre, and a mod friendly design.

From On The Fly, Chapter 1:

They scoffed initially, for what use was a flying machine without a pilot? With bravery and deceit Lyrio had not known he possessed, he told them of his gifts and swore that he could fly the glider, carrying it all the way to Azmadisha on his wind (and prayers, if necessary) for the good of Narimir. When they believed him, Lyrio was stunned. When his feet left solid earth for the first time, Lyrio was reborn.

The first trip was not easy. He was not strong. His body uncoordinated, the glider threatened to snap out of his grip, and veered off course more than once. Lyrio ached from his efforts, his muscles wrenched beyond their endurance. He feared he would plummet to the ground, but the wind remained with Lyrio, pushing him onward when his body would have failed.

The people on the ground could not see Lyrio’s doubts or his weak limbs. They saw only the results--their messages delivered, and the reinforcements posted in return. He received a medal for his ingenuity. It was silver with a fob of plain, blue ribbon, but a medal nonetheless. Lyrio would polish the small circlet and think of the adepts in Argoniss who, for all their study and spells, would never be rewarded for their toil. Knowledge was its own reward in those forbidden towers, and Lyrio told himself that he had found a better way of life.
