About the Game
In the aftermath of a brief war, Calvard is enjoying unprecedented economic prosperity. However, the public grows uncertain as the number of immigrants increases and questionable political reform runs rampant. Follow the spriggan Van Arkride on a unique request that will prove more than he bargained for. Will the nation fall into chaos?
The Story So Far…
The spriggan's life is but one of many professions that has emerged from the Calvard Republic. Be it playing detective, negotiator, or bounty hunter, Van Arkride takes on the kind of work that legitimate sources can’t accept. Whether it’s work that's best left out of the public eye, or even a request from a criminal organization in the underworld; so long as it pays, he'll accept near-any job that comes across his table.
The year is S.1208. A prim-and-proper young lady dressed in the uniform of an esteemed academy visits a rundown multi-tenant building in the Old Town district of Edith, the nation's capital. With a most dignified gaze, she looks upon the plaque of the door before her. It reads: 'ARKRIDE Solutions Office: Complicated Matters Only.'
Steeling herself, she knocks on the door three times.
"First thing in the morning...?" a relaxed yet surprisingly young voice grumbles with a yawn.
From the moment he opens the door to greet her, a new tale begins.
