Aetherra is a fantastical world bound together by a raw elemental energy known as aether. A substance so profound that, when controlled, can power great cities with otherworldly technology, endow beings with the ability to manipulate the elements, and enrapture one with a lust so intense it consumes their very being.
Crysal Lake, an impossibly deep caldera, keeps Aetherra's best-kept secret hidden: an aether deposit at the bottom of the Lake that joins directly to the aether core. Floating proudly above that secret is the island city of Fano. Once the prototype of symbiosis between mankind and aether, now the destitute remains of forgotten greatness.
The resolve of a young Indosian may present the spark of hope the citizens of Fano so desperately need: the hidden location of a fabled druid known as Gilgazo who belongs to an ancient order of sages devoted to mastering the instrumentation of aether.
Will our heroes heed the call to recover the lost druid and save a city? And if they do, will they survive the journey?
How it works
This feeling is primarily achieved through an audio accompaniment for each scene that provides both an ambient sound bed and an original composition, scored explicitly to construct the intended atmosphere for each scene.
At the beginning of each scene is a QR code that can be scanned to navigate quickly to the corresponding audio. Links, like this one, can also be found in the scene's footer for easy access to the audio component from anywhere within the scene.
The Lost Druid comes with over 2 hours of original music to support your adventure in Aetherra, composed by acclaimed recording artist Jessy Ribordy. Each composition is handcrafted utilizing film-quality audio production tools, sounds effects, instrumentation, and recorded performances. Scene compositions are explicitly written to support long-form RPG gameplay with indistinguishable repeat and sonic variance, allowing tracks to loop for extended periods without feeling monotonous or repetitive.
