AGONE, an epic role-playing game in the Twilight Realms
At the dawn of time, the Muses breathed life and magic into Harmundia. Then the Masque came, a renegade set on putting all mortals under his yoke. The Eclipse darkened the sky and Twilight descended upon the world. Since then, the humans and the nine seasonling races have build the Twilight Realms. Now the enemies are more deceitful and more powerful than ever. The Masque has returned, and the evil Darken is creeping into the Realms. Once again, as the Eminences Grise foretold it, war is setting Harmundia ablaze!
Let the Drama begin!
Born in the wake of Agone of Roundrock, the Inspired have already led full lives and believe their hour of glory has come and gone. But fate has decided otherwise, for they carry the Flames of the Muses. As an Eminence Grise, the time has come for you to bring those inspired by the flame - lords, merchants, highwaymen and magicians - together to fight the enemy.
