Summary: Tren looses his daughter in a skirmish when transporting a book of magical secrets to Andalun - and her death is his fault.
The warhero Tren lives with his wife and his young daughter, Sophia, in a cabin in the woods. But war calls once more. After he left, his wife was infected with a dangerous disease and died, leaving young Sophia alone for days. When he returned he found her waiting for him - after that fateful day he sold the house in Tilea, took her with him as a traveling merchant and decided never again to put family over duty.
... 10 years later:
When Tren and his now older and carefree daughter Sophia cross the border from Castodia into The Dynasty, they
stop in a small village by the name of Karascha. There they find an old friend from the Civil War days in Tilea who is short before his execution. He has a last will: Tren has to bring a magically sealed book of great importance to the City of Andalun - The City of Truth and Capital of the Dynasty. He explains that the lately occurring phenomenon's like poisoned rivers and dead animals had a reason hidden in the pages of this said book.
At first he refuses, knowing they will be hunted by Castodia’s Secret Agents, but realizing that many lives depend on it he finally gives in. Sophia begs him to not leave her again so she is allowed to come with him. They hire two more mercenaries, Adriana and Elon, to accompany them and start by retrieve the book from its secret hiding place in the nearby mountain.
During the crossing of the Spirited Forest though, at night, a stranger asks for refuge in their rune circle which is designed to keep the evil spirits away.
Enter the rune circle, listen to the Forest! - Atmosphere by Gonçalo Silva
Unfortunately he reveals himself - after making sure he was actually talking to the group transporting the magic book - to be an Agent of the Castodian Inquisition.
A skirmish ensues and the Inquisitor is killed - but so are Elon and Sophia. Without being able to hear her last words, Tren has to see Sophia die.
With a deeply broken spirit, Adriana and Tren make their way to the city of Andalun. There Tren plays with the thought of letting himself fall of the cliff which overlooks the city - being responsible for having lost his wife and daughter and no longer caring about the wars of the world.
But Adriana reveals that through a slight of hand the powerful book is still in their possession and she asks him to at least finish the mission with her: To bring the book to the head of the Order of Tian, as they were asked to do. He considers it.
DAY IN, DAY OUT
Tren and Adriana hand over the book without a thanks received and realize what knowledge contained the book they had transported. Tren takes a job as a cook because he does not know what else to do and later seduces Adriana who tries to bring him into the Dynasty Secret Service - but she rejects him and he her offer. In the meantime Ayko is introduced in her perfect world catches a small rift that will lead her down a road to revelation.
Tren and Adriana hand over the book to the Order of Tian, but they are left without any information regarding the contents of the book.
Waiting to deliver their book in the Temple of the Tian Order he has a moment for himself undistracted remembering his daughter. - Music Theme composed by: Till Duft. Violin: Almuth Klocke.
With nothing left that Tren cares about he descends into nihilism. He takes a job as a cook in an underground Tilean Kitchen whilst drinking a lot, cracking jokes and trying to forget. When Adriana reappears a few weeks later to offer him to join the Dynasties Secret Service, he tries to seduce her. She goes along with it until she realizes that Tren is insincere and she knows that he is too afraid to care for someone again. She leaves and he appears to have learned nothing - and he will certainly not join the Secret Service because that would require him to get involved and take responsibility again.
We get introduced to a further character: Ayko (15). She is the young careless princess. Removed from the difficulty of the Royal life both through her disinterest and her fathers, King Isao’s, intent to keep her out of harms, she lives in her own little world. When she and her father arrive at Teara, she rejects a marriage offer by General Gewalt and although she has rejected many offer before, this rejection enrages Gewalt and he will not forget this disgrace. In the mean time, Ayko and her friend and soon-to-be knight Ezriel (16) who secretly hopes to marry her is just on a mission to steal a cake from the royal kitchen for fun when they come across a foodthief, Adam (15) there. Because Ayko persuades the guards in return for an angry monolog of his father Adam walks away that night without getting caught.
Tren “rescues” Adriana and takes it as a reason to join the Dynasty Secret Service. Ayko finds out more about life outside the palace and decides donating from her own belongings to the people.
Tren feels his life to be more and more empty. As he drives his addictions and hedonism to new levels he repeatedly finds himself in his apartment playing with his knife.
When one evening Tren sees Adriana in a dark alleyway under attack from street thugs he cant help but bail her out.
When he finds out that Adriana is now part of the secret service he agrees to join under the condition to be part of her Unit because he says she will get herself killed otherwise as in his opinion she as not as good a fighter as he is. Adriana theorizes in a conversation with one of the squad mates that he just needs someone to care about.
They are officially transferred to the Island of Teara where they are supposed to guard the supply route to the Royal Family which is currently positioned there.
In the meantime Ayko asks her mentor Usagi to escort her and Ezriel to the Harbor City where her father did not allowed her to go. She gets a taste of real life. When she meets Adam’s family she decides to donate them some money that she had on her. This sparks an idea she is going to follow: Taking those worthless golden coins that everyone seems to be so fuzzed about and giving it to the people who needs them.
Usagi talks in secret to an Tian envoy. The Magic Book that Tren delivered to Andalun has to be sent to the royal court for examination - it might be the key to Usagi’s studies of the late nature phenomenon's like dead wales, poisoned rivers that had been occurring lately.
Tren and Ayko meet and they don’t like each other. Tren discards the kings warnings that there might be a conspiracy. Ayko starts to give out money to citizens. Ezriel accepts an offer by General Gewalt to start training with him.
Tren gets to know the squad that he will be part of. They arrive on Teara and start training. He is introduced to Ayko and thinks she is a little uneducated, arrogant brat. It therefore does not please him when the king assigns him the duty to protect her against assassination and tells him about a secret conspiracy below the city in the red keep. Tren decides to discard his warnings and finds the next bar downtown where he can get drunk.
In front of Adam's Inn. - Concept atmosphere by Ana Machado
Ayko in the meantime starts to build a small Aid Base in Adam’s fathers Inn. There she gives out money for those in need. Slowly her actions are carried by the word of mouth and she receives daily envoys bringing matters of need to her ears. Soon her money starts running out. The king, her father, opposes her course as she will soon attract the whole kingdoms attention and run out of money. Adam and Ayko are getting closer to each other and Ezriel who watches this happen decides to take an offer by General Gewalt, a mercenary educator and a General in the Dynasties Royal Staff, to train him as a warrior capable of earning the “Heroes Privilege” which would allow him to marry Ayko.
Adams family is killed. Adam escapes. Reporters report this incident to reflect unfavorably on the kings family. Whilst everyone around Ayko is trying to put out fires, Tren smells a conspiracy.
One night a detective enters Adams Inn and finds that Adams father had not only been smuggling and also killed a man who had tried to take his wife in all senses of the word against her will. When he resists the imprisonment the conflict turns bloody and Adams father and mother are killed. Only Adam and his little sister manage to escape under the cover of night using the smuggling tunnels.
Conspiracy - Concept Composed by Till Duft
This stirs up controversy. All reporters report that the princess and the king had supported the illegal activities. This sows distrust between the Dukes of the Dynasty, advisors to the king and between Ayko and her friends. Ezriel turns his back on her when she tries to come to him for consolation whilst Usagi tries to manage the public relations crisis. However, in the meantime the magic book is stolen by a mercenary from the Red Keep positioned on Teara and under General Gewalts command - which tells the audience that the conspiracy that King Isao was fearing is indeed existing and is lead by General Gewalt. But no-one of the main characters is yet aware of this. Only Tren feels that something is strange about all reporters reporting the same thing - how shady the actions of the royal family appear - and starts investigating.
Ezriel is indoctrinated by Gewalt. A small secret service force is removed from Teara to resolve a traitor conflict in Calohan - when Adriana and her squad arrive there it turns out to have been a ruse. Adam arrives in the village Carino where a few farmers find and take care of him. Ayko steels kingly treasures to keep up her aid operations and Tren supports her.
Ezriels Training is making progress. Gewalt who by now is a bit like a father figure for Ezriel tells him about the injustices and imbalances between kings and everyone else and that he dreams of a more just society. Ezriel takes everything in.
A call for help from the Port of Calohan reaches Teara where conspirators are said to have taken multiple ships from the harbor and are now on their way to take the whole of Calohan. The king gathers a staff of Generals. They decide to dispatch many of the on Teara stationed special forces to help defend the vital military harbor. General Gewalt is the most eager supporter of this mission.
When Tren hears about this he airs his discontent to King Isao who then lectures him about responsibility and the complexity of his decisions and ignores everything else.
Adam arrives at a small village named Carino where a few good people give him fish to eat and a bed for the night.
Adriana arrives at Calohan. Everything is in perfect order. There are no conspirators. They suspect a ruse and they start a return journey to tell the king about it.
Ayko steals some of the kingly treasury to keep up her aid mission. Tren gets hears about it but doesn’t stop her. On her request he gives her a fighting lesson.
General Gewalt arrives with a force at Carino and kills everyone with a few exceptions, including Adam. When he leaves to the Demongate to get himself a personal demon force he fails to control them and dies trying. Adam manages to convince people on board the prison ship to drive back and warn Teara. There they discover that mercenary forces set to defend Teara have vanished and that the Lightfire used to emergency contact Port Calohan is been made inaccessible by Ezriel and a couple of mercenaries.
General Gewalt appears at the small village of Carino in which Adam is currently stationed. They attack by night and kill almost everyone in order to establish a naval base without witnesses. Only Adam and a few children survive by hiding until they are captured and brought onto boats. Adam recognizes the moral of the soldiers to be low on board. The General’s plan seems to be to use the Demongates forces to overwhelm and kill the king, take the throne whilst establishing a democracy and later adding the demons to his army to fight against the Holy Empires - the Dynasty long time rivals - but most are not happy with both the risk and killing everyone alive in Teara. When General Gewalt leaves to make his way to the Demongate, Adam manages to convince the man on his boat return to a mounting storm back to Teara to warn the others.
At the Demongate General Gewalt and his fellows perform a ritual that opens the Demongate prematurely. Using the stolen Book of Magic he tries to command the nightmarish demons that now ascend from the Gate. But the Demons are not affected at all and within seconds he and all his men are dead. The book falls onto the ground and is not seen again until Season 3.
Adams ship almost sinks in the storm - he arrives at Teara and raises the alarm. He is released from his temporary imprisonment when it is realized that the Red Keep’s Mercenary forces under General Gewalts command that were supposed to defend Teara in case of an emergency, are gone.
The King finally accepts that he has been lured into a trap and wants to sent word to Port Calohan using the Lightfire - the emergency signal of Teara - but he finds all gates around the lightfire are barricaded by a man who has the key to all the gates: Ezriel. And he has a few man guarding the entrance.
The Lightfire Room is taken and Ezriel imprisoned. Teara notifies the 1st Fleet to come to their aid. The attack commences and everyone realizes that retreating seems to be their only option. All civilians leave despite the storm and Ayko frees Ezriel to help in the fight.
The Royal Guards breaks through to the Lightfire Room and ignite a distress signal. The fight does not happen when Ayko talks to Ezriel who gets imprisoned for treason after the Royal forces breached the Room.
Through the storm the Tower guards on the surrounding Islands miss the signal though. Only after three hours the light breaks through the mist, alarming Port Calohan which immediately starts deploying the 1st Royal Fleet to relieve Teara.
On Teara preparations for the battle are in full swing. Ayko holds a speech to the population of Teara. Many of those families who received help stay and prepare to fight whilst the rest gathers on the airport and port ready to leave once the storm has died down.
The 24th watches over the dark, stormy sea from the insight of the lighthouse when the attack commences - Atmosphere by Ana Machado
Then the attack commences. Demons and Hollows have formed up in the fog and darkness, gathered their materials they brought from the demongate and now wave after wave the crash on rafts against the Fortress Island’s Wall. Soon the defenders realize that they are not in for a monthlong siege but for a battle lasting no longer then a night.
When Usagi consults a souls wisdom for the upcoming battle in his wizard tower, he finds out that Soulmagic which had previously not been useable in combat action is now usable and they are trying to figure out how to use it.
Soon the first Ring is taken and the forces retreat to the Palace defenses on the upper parts of the city.
Finally the Demons and Hollows have breached Downtown. All over the Castle Island fights ensue and the Royal forces slowly retreat into the Stronghold. The Civilians who chose to leave are using all airships and ships now to try and escape despite the storm. There is not enough space for everyone.
Ayko frees Ezriel from prison. She trusts him to fight for her and he is eager to redeem himself.
The King is killed. Adriana’s Squad arrives and by sacrificing himself Ezriel enables the others to reach the boats and safety. After they have returned from the Island Ayko returns to Andalun where she will be fighting the upcoming war with her friends and Tren who has become somewhat like a father to her.
A small demon detachment arrives from an unpredictable angle: From the air using bat like creatures like dragons - and manages to kill the King but not Ayko who is now fiercely defended by Ezriel, Adam, Usagi and Tren. Ayko witnesses her last parent’s death.
As the island is overrun they flee towards the southern docks where Adriana and her squad have arrived with their few boats to rescue the last survivors. On the way back she sees people who had come to Adam’s Inn for help, stayed because of her and are now laying dead in the dirt. While chased down by a mass of Hollows and Demons Ezriel sacrifices himself, so that the others can reach the harbor. To do so, Ayko has to let him go - finally understanding through sacrifice her own responsibility as the new Queen.
On the fastest ship, Ayko, Tren and the others make it back to Andalun where they are met by the generals of the army and transported to the towns stronghold. Ayko tries to make the decision to mobilize all forces but she and the generals get into a disagreement. The military staff fears that if too many forces will be drawn into the conflict, Castodia will realize their weakening and bring its allies to crush the Dynasty, forcing it into a two front confrontation.
Tren finds Ayko in a room in the castle. Being the only one she trusts, she explains her worries to Tren. He listens and comforts her as the father she has lost and he failed to be a year ago.
Ayko has realized her responsibility, Tren has found his way back to meaning but the war has just now begun.
Tren struggles with Duty and Family in the pilot episode. Finally trying to choose both he looses his daughter - the last bit of family that he still had. After returning the magic book to the Order of Tian as duty commanded he fails to continue to make meaning from his life. Cracking inappropriate jokes in a bar he started working in and trying to seduce Adriana who prevented him from killing himself he spirals down a hole of “nothing matters”. The only thing that can heal him will be starting to care again. But he does not have the courage nor does he see clearly that it is this which he lacks. So over the season he learns to care for Adriana, for Princess Ayko of the Dynasty who he starts to train and who later becomes like a daughter to him and eventually about the fate of the people of the Dynasty themselves. His progress will be tested and reverted by conspiracies and lies at the kingly palace but when at the end heroic action in battle is required to defend the innocent people of Teara he shows who he was and might yet again become: A hero of the people, for the people and a Warrior ready to be a leader in the battle for the soul of mankind which will range over the next parts of the story.
Princess Theme - Concept Composed by: Till Duft

She is not interested in the fathers business prefers to be left alone to play with her best friend, Ezriel, who is on his way to become a knight. But after an event where they meet a boy, Adam, from the harbor city she finally finds out that there is more than her blissful carefree life. Slowly starting to explore the real world against her father’s will who wants to keep her safe knowing she is the only descended of the dynasty, she starts to pity the beggars for their fate and starts building a small underground well fare state in Adam’s fathers Inn. She gets herself and the king in trouble when she is caught in a conspiracy between good and bad public opinion about her and the royal house and a conspiracy. She is assigned mentors Tren and Usagi by her father to prepare her for the crown. They could hardly be more different from each - a wise old priest and a rugged pessimistic warhero. But they help her come to the realization that taking responsibility is harder and more important than she had known before. When in the final battle she sees the consequences of her actions - the men she had rallied to fight for her almost all die - she realizes her full responsibility. When she allows Ezriel to sacrifice himself in the end to make sure she can make it back to the Dynasty’s Capital of Andalun.

In the upcoming season she will be tested by a country divided whilst a war with dire odds unfolds around and inside her kingdom.
FIRST TO FINAL SEASON
Warveteran Tren tries to recover from the loss of his daughter that occurred during a transport mission of a magic book. His journey brings him together with Princess Ayko of “The Dynasty” who he trains so she will be able to defend herself. During the process he learns how to care - about anything be it a person, country or cause - again despite all that has happened and becomes something like a father to Ayko again whilst she realizes her responsibility for herself and her people. But this happens during a cold war and an immanent invasion of a in the magic book mentioned Demon Army summoned by a conspirator at the Demongate. In a battle of survival on a small Island Teara where our main characters stay, the King and Aykos friend and love interest are unable to escape alive and Tren has to become advisor to the queen and father to Ayko who lost her dad. A role that his past has prepared him for.
The Holy Empires, a League of Nations which had long waited for a weak point in the Dynasties defenses, get notice of the Dynasties struggle against the sinister forces of nature. They sent forth their armies to crush the Dynasty which was now fighting on two fronts. During this hard time Ayko learns what it really means to run a country at war. Dark schemes in Castodia keep Tren busy trying to prevent assassination attempts on Ayko’s life whilst negotiating peace with the Holy Empires that tragically falls apart at the worst possible moment. In Trens absence however the loss of her love and the great responsibility bare terribly on Ayko. She almost looses control in which case the different Dukes running the Dynasty provinces would have waged war against each other. She realizes that in order to bare responsibility she has to take care of herself so she will be in a position to make the hard choices to ensure the survival of her people. In the meantime the Demons have arrived at borders all over the Western World bringing devastation to all whilst the Dynasty had been hit hardest and the enemy keeps coming. In order to unite the dukes she comes up with a plan: The people of the Dynasty give up on their land under unbearable pressure and pull of the greatest logistical effort of their time: Moving all their people through “The Boon” - a Inland Sea- to the safety of the Valano Mountains to regroup with what is left of mankind.
Tren leads a group of diehard undercover agents back through the demon infested lands based on the small slither of hope they might be able to figure out how to close the demongate.
Ayko and the council of kings and queens from the remaining countries take a while to figure out how to work together but Ayko’s experience at the front of the war but also a deadly illness that has her under control giving her not much time to live helps them unite. Usagi determines the cause of her illness: A previous incident in which she closely escaped a demons attack.
Mankind prepares itself for the last stand as all Western States up to the Valano Mountains have been overrun. Whilst the battle ensues in the mountains Tren comes closer to the Demongate due to his prior insights into the matter finding more and more evidence that he might be able to open the gate.
When they reach the gate they find a way to bring his dead daughter Sophia back from the underworld but in a tragic twist of events Tren himself dies. The legacy of the old world - their fights and decisions - are now their children’s to bare.
After the great battle, Ayko prepares mankind for a new dawn before she too dies of her illness. And history is ready to repeat itself but it will never forget her name.
THE WORLD ATREIA
An intriguing world lays at the base of every good Epic Fantasy production. This is why we are taking special care of populating it bit by bit with unique concepts like our Fagerium fueled airships, nature bound religions and emphasis on real life complexity.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TRADEMARK
We believe that managing an IP at the base of films, games and books is an important task. Successful IP's (Marvel, Star Wars, League of Legends, Lord of the Rings, Game Of Thrones) seem to only grow in importance and we would like to be in the game, too. Here is our approach:
OUR DEVELOPMENT TEAM
Writer, Director, Worldbuilding
He was born in the north of Germany, grew up in Cologne and began writing when he was six years old. Over the years, he has worked on over 150 mostly low-budget sets in all positions from boom operator to actor to director and producer. He successfully completed acting school which helped him improve on writing more personal and human stories. Inspired massively by Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings and the late Arcane, he wrote and directed over 50 short films and acted in a few smaller German TV series. In the last two years he has worked for a YouTube Channel in content creation and promotion picking up vital marketing skills.
Concept Art, Worldbuilding
He was born and lived in South Africa for the first twelve years of his life before relocating to Portugal. He is currently a student in the renowned fine art faculty FBAUL completing his drawing degree. In his spare time, he works diligently to grow his skills not merely in concept art but also adjacent fields and life itself. He works well in all environments, has a specific knack for problem-solving concepts in the blue sky phase and iterating within predefined boundaries in teams or alone. He tends to pull inspiration from his experiences and interests which allows him to create more realism & depth in his work. Some of his most prominent interests are contemporary and classic literature, history, cinematography & storytelling in digital media, classical art and digital art.
Script Editor and Developer
She grew up in Basel and studied at the University of Zurich Master in Film Studies and Media covering various areas from creative producing to distribution. She is an accomplished editing and script coach who also supports the directors that she works with in promotion and distribution matters. She has accompanied and shown Swiss Documentaries in Cinemas of various Distributors and was responsible for the promotion of those films. At the International Short Film Festival Winterthur she is not only a team member but among other things also a curator for the Youth Program and the Head of Pitch Coaching.
He is a german screenwriter who started to write from early elementary school on. He has written many short stories, screenplays and participated in worldbuilding for fantasy and science-fiction projects. Inspired by different movies and series but also influenced by his in depth studies of history, cultures and politics, worldbuilding and the creating of worlds have become his passion. To him it is most important to find a connection between the historical, political and cultural dimensions of certain events and use the combination of these to create for a functioning story world therefore for a good story that can proof that everything is connected and influences each other.
He started gaining most of his experiences when he was 15 years old and joined a band using his bass guitar playing concerts in and around his hometown. He soon got more involved into the technical part of mixing music. Despite suffering under chemotherapeutic treatment he managed to enroll at the University Etic in Lisbon where he is currently completing his Sound Design Studies. He has also worked as a boom operator, mixing live music at festivals, live music at churches, podcasts and commercials. He works very well together with Jonas because from him he can receive a creative direction so he can focus on the best technical solutions for the task.
She is a Lisbon based Sounddesigner. From when she was able to remember she loved music and started studying it closer at the age of 12. Today, besides musical formations, she plays the piano and the violin. Later she found cinema to be her passion to pursue. She has worked on an array of short film projects in all positions in the apartment from Boom Operator to Sound Director. She is fascinated by the details. She works very close with directors but gives, as every artists does, her own "touch" to her work. She is a big fan of horror and animation movies exactly because of the power of sound. She is currently officially studying sound whilst investing into her own work studio.
He was born in Cologne where he grew up together with his friends Jonas and Fynn and is currently working in Freiburg where he studies musicology and german studies at the Albert Ludwigs University. Next to his studies he works as a teacher at the University for Harmony Studies and Counterpoint as well as DJing - also for Ambience and Dance Schools. Most of the time he practices his skills and composes scores for Shortfilms and writes Pop and other commissioned work mostly for Dance Schools and Singer/Songwriters. Starting in October his studies will focus exclusively on composing. Among many role models of his Anton Bruckner and Hans Zimmer are the greatest. It is his special joy to use his music to intrigue and move people within a motion picture - this includes the silent moments after the last note has been played.
With this series I want to invest in worldbuilding. I believe spending a lot of thoughts on details can really make the whole picture something unique. My philosophy goes something like this: A good director/writer is not the one who makes the right choices, its more importantly the one who makes many choices. Because every time we miss the chance to make a choice on something it becomes generic. And what better place to ask yourself fundamental questions about the workings of the world, society, humanity than when you are forced to make one up? This is why I appreciate the genre so much and believe it is the ultimate choice for genre cross overs - something that has not been done (a lot).
When it comes to telling the story there are a few things I’d love to do: I want to tell a "Chosen One" Story (we have not yet seen many girls with this arc) - but instead of giving our character plot armor (a prophecy that foretells that they will defeat the big bad) she is selected by her heritage: The only heir of the King. She too has a destiny she can not escape, she too is a target for assassination attempts but she can still be killed because nobody knows the future and it therefore does not imply plot-armor. She has no “special one” gene: She was just born into these circumstances and has to fight hard to acquire her skills. This will make it so much more satisfying to see her succeed because before she can we saw her fight for it putting herself on the line.
With Tren I want to explore principles that have been introduced by the father of Logotherapy, Victor E. Frankl: Namely the deduction of meaning from suffering - done his way. To paraphrase from his book Man's Search for Meaning: 'Many of the inmates that had been sent to the concentration camps felt that if they would not be freed again their life had no meaning. To me a different question came to mind: If life’s meaning simply depended on such coincidences, what meaning is there in life at all?' - This is not a nihilistic notion - quite on the contrary it acknowledges that every human being has a choice on how to act in relationship to his/her suffering and to creating meaning from it's inevitability. This way life remains meaningful until the very last moment. Along those lines Tren has to choose how to deal with the loss of his daughter, the last person in the world he truly cared about, changing his response over the length of the first season. I hope it will bring introspection to those who want to stop and think about it.
Why Audiences will LOVE this!
Destiny Theme - Concept Composed by: Till Duft
... because it gives them an opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a world with its own culture, religion, rules and politics - presented with the intriguing Mages, Airships and Medieval Battles. This scenario suggests a rich depth to the world that has not yet been unraveled. We hope they will love the combination of subtle character development and grand scenery with our attempt to combine Art-house and Blockbuster in the same package where the characters and armies face battles, but feel grounded and real, even though they are set in a fantasy setting with more options for drama in those circumstances. They will love it because it will feature high amount of contrast between the small build in humorous moments (Ayko and friends joking, having a laugh, enjoying the carefree life), Suspenseful scenes (Camping in the Spirited Forest, Waiting for an Impending Attack) and melancholic sequences (loosing your child, regaining hope, starting to care again) while also featuring romantic scenes (Adriana - Tren, Ayko - Adam - Ezriel). We hope they will experience the genre cross over - Epic Fantasy, War movie, “Historical” Drama, Conspiracy - as a breath of fresh air whilst the core of the story stays relevant and gripping to watch.
