Story OutlineEdit

The story of Venetica takes place in an alternate version of sixteenth century Italy, where magic is real.

Each generation, a new mortal successor is chosen to serve as Death, a physical being who acts as the Final Guide in to afterlife. But, the most recent choice had nefarious plans of his own. Taking the knowledge he'd gained while being trained for his role as Death, and combining it with his own mastery of the dark arts of Necromancy, he contrived a ritual that disrupted the balance between life and death. This Undead Archon made himself immortal through a ritual of death, along with four useful allies. The current Death cannot act directly in the mortal world to thwart their vile plans, as they plot to make themselves as gods by breaking down the barriers between the worlds of the living and the dead, casting all into darkness.

The only mortal person capable of stopping the Undead Archon is a young woman, Scarlett, living a simple life in a peaceful mountain village. She knows nothing of these momentous events, nor does she know that she is secretly the daughter of Death himself, a child who should never have been conceived, but now is the world's only hope. Through her heritage, Death's own necromantic powers can be channeled into the mortal world, granting her powers of her own, and the ability to wield the only weapon that can harm the immortals. Though still young and untrained, Scarlett must cultivate and nurture her powers, with the help of the father she never knew, to save the world from the final spell Undead Archon.

The story begins in the small mining town of San Pasquale in the Italian mountains, where Scarlett was raised. To fulfill her destiny, Scarlett must find an ancient weapon, the Moonblade, and make her way to Venice, where the Undead Archon and his allies rule with ever-increasing ruthlessness. Her enemies are powerful, and are already seeking the threat they sense in her. Her allies are few. Scarlett's quest will take her from far from mountain home to the great city of Venice, and from the depths of Venice's catacombs up to the heights of its royal Palace, and even on a brief excursion to Africa, before she can accrue the means and opportunity to finally confront her nemesis.

Under the guidance of the player. Scarlett has a choice of three different Guilds she can join. Her guild will both reflect and shape her outlook, activities and skills.
