This went out as an update to our amazing backers a couple of days ago, but we thought we’d share it with everyone because we’re just so darn excited about this game!
We thought it was about time we shared a bit more information about Fortress of Fire, the second title in our Order of the Thorne anthology series. With a week to go before our Kickstarter campaign finishes, Fortress of Fire is getting close to being funded!
Sir Caradoc, a noble Knight of the Order of the Thorne, is summoned to the castle stronghold of the Order. The Grand Master of The Order, Aoife (pronounced ee-fa) had been hearing reports of disturbing happenings in the Land of Sunlight. Some months ago, she had sent a monk of the Order, Brother Eoin, to investigate the old monastery in the valley, but no contact had been made since he departed. The rumours of a darkness over the land and of a massive fortress appearing there overnight, were disturbing indeed. She decided more information was required and tasked Sir Caradoc with visiting the Land of Sunlight and investigating the occurrences. What has happened to the former monastery and what is happening in the land? What became of Brother Eoin?
Taking his trusty Squire Patrick with him, they set out across the realm for the Land of Sunlight. As they passed through the caves that mark the entrance to the Kingdom of Light, they stopped to look out over what was now a dark, desolate place with a massive fortress rising into the sky. Suddenly, they were best by a fierce and vicious enemy, and Sir Caradoc was captured while Patrick was rendered unconscious and fell down a gully. When he woke, he climbed to the top of the hill again – Caradoc was gone, but his sword remained. Patrick picks up the word, and with resolve, sets out to rescue his master.

Unique to Fortress of Fire is Patrick’s Squire Kit. This kit contains the usual basic squiring equipment such as rope and flint, but also contains a number of herbs and liquids that can be mixed to create a wide variety of useful elixirs and potions. Sure to be useful as he attempts to free his Knight from capture! The use of the items at his disposable and his skills as Caradoc’s squire will offer unique solutions to the puzzles and challenges that lie ahead!
