The Aegis Saga

RELEASE DATE: April 2020

A child will inherit the Two Kingdoms or perish. A turan will embrace humanity or burn it to ashes.

When the Archans left to walk the paths between stars, wild magic began returning. Now humans war to fill the vacuum, blind to the magical blight that is racing to smother the whole continent.

The last Archans – the turans – must choose to fight, or to follow their ancestors into the stars. And their fate rests on the life of a human child.

The Aegis Saga is a 280,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Charles Parkes, where your choices affect the story. It’s entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Play as two characters sharing the unique world of Eris. Touch the minds of your tribe, learn the secret of dancing time, and fight blighted monsters as a turan warrior. Share quiet moments of fun with your friends while you dream of adventure as a young Brokenbridge orphan. Both are connected, somehow. And when they meet, nothing will ever be the same again.

  • Race through a hostile city on the back of a feaclaw.
  • Betray the trust of a powerful shaman as he teaches you dance time.
  • Find love on the shingle beside a peaceful water garden.
  • Learn about the glyf and how your magic can alter or destroy you!
  • Play as a male or female human, and an ungendered turan.
  • See your personality change with your character development, without being locked into decisions to ‘win’ stats checks.
  • Reread a page you missed, or skip ahead during a second read through.
