Throne of gold
After her attempted suicide, in her coma, she now wonders alone in her imagined underworld trying to locate some glimmer of hope.
Things that shouldn’t be wants her soul. She knows too much, but she still hear his voice, but can he guide her back, and reach through the surface of her suffering, or is she, and the only one he ever loved, lost forever?
When worlds collide
In short, ‘When Worlds Collide’, tells a tale of bravery. In the distant land of SARAYA , something is sterring in the west. Shadows of a nameless fear are spreading and one brave soul seeeking the truth, is now closer to the source that anyone before has ever been, and he’s bringing along his childhood friend, so that he too can see it with his own eyes.
These two fictitious characters from our world are on the borders to the dark continents in the west, seeing their beloved mountains engulfed in flames, huge parts of their world and their homeland destroyed.
Fire and darkness is spreading, and they shouldn’t even be there. They wanted to see the chaos for themselves, so that maybe, they could bring back something to their people that could help them understand what is coming, and maybe find a way how to counter it.
It´s also a story about never giving up.
No more tears left to cry, when worlds collide, in other words, when push comes to shove, you either man up or surrender, and our characters from our story made the choice to not give up their dreams for a better future. Maybe their world can still be saved?
The Book of wisdom
Everything and all depends on the finding of all the lost pages of the book. The runes must be found and lit.
From all corners of SARAYA, the search has begun and nothing matters most than the restoration of the book, for within lies everything that can save this world from eternal shadow, and give hope for tomorrow.
The story is about lost love and to what length you will go to save it, no matter the cost. It’s about our lead female character of ACT 2. In this third installment of her and her husbands story, she is now in a coma after her attempted suicide, and while her mind is dreaming, she is praying to The Sandman to come and end her suffering.
The Sandman is a mythical character in European folklore who puts people to sleep and encourages and inspires beautiful dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto their eyes. Our take on the Sandman is more sinister. He’s the gatekeeper of dreams and under the influence of The Dark. He did answer her prayers, but will he be reuniting her with her love, or is his plan of a more dark and sinister nature?
