Version 1.02 A law corrupted makes heroes of the lawless. Justice has failed. In Crest, the kingdom of humanity, everyone who creates problems for the nobility is shipped across the sea to face imprisonment. The criminal, the deranged, the inconvenient, and the uncomfortable; they are cast across the sea to the greedy island of Lukatt whose shores let nothing slip free. The upper levels of government are rife with corruption. Aristocrats outlaw hunting in all but the sparsest environments, claiming regions with game for themselves. Nobles prosecute cake-thieves as committing conspiracy against the kingdom. Even the bishops and crusaders are not above humiliating those they outrank, arranging false crimes to remove their competition. But you do not have to deal with the difficulty of life on Crest. You have been sent to Lukatt. It’s said to be a n inescapable hell-hole where criminals tear each other apart. The only thing to look forward to is a short and miserable life where you can never relax again. A place for the worst members of society where no one can be trusted. Since no one returns from the island, all the people have are rumours. This story is a convenient one for Crest, letting the powerful keep everyone in line for fear of the punishment that awaits. Their lie of justice is over. Lukatt is a place without illusions of law or safety. Life here is real. You work for what you have. You may have lost one home but here you can forge new bonds. Gather a band of the accused and forgotten, forgive their transgressions or ostracize them, use them as workhorses or nurture their trust. A dangerous region governed by survival of the fittest. Will you slaughter your enemies or spare them, release the conquered or press them into service? Will you be the one to finally escape the inescapable, or be the first to bend the seas and skies of the island to your will? Whether a sinner or saint, y ou’re now on this island with nothing but +1000 Choice Points (CP) You have been sentenced to 10 years on the island. Now, please state your origin for the court.

Drop-In A stranger from another world. A relic from another time. An anomaly from another dimension entirely. You have been pulled from a very different place and forced to make a new life. You have no knowledge of this strange landscape. No history or connections with the people who live here. You have no way to return to where you came from. In many ways, all this adds up to make you the same as others who find themselves trapped on Lukatt. There is no way to reach what you’ve left behind, but perhaps you can help other refugees here. There is no love lost between Crest and Tsarath, so perhaps making your way to the orc nation would be the best way to give everyone a return to civilized life? Unless you want to try your hand at rebuilding Lukatt… Criminal The result of your trial was decided long before you stepped into that courtroom. It may have been decided before you ever suspected you would be charged with a crime. As a convict having been sent here from Crest, your accusation and guilt is yours

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
