Desdemona – daughter of Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the Fae – has vanquished from their seat in the fairy realm. There are rumors she was seen around the Late Renaissance City of Cremona, Northern Italy (circa 57 miles south-east from Milan). The Protagonists are Fallen: exiled Fae who have forsworn their ancient Oath and thus banished on the World, bound in mortal flesh. They have the power of Nature on their behalf, but can they strive with their distrustful past? Can they make their way back to their Fae nature? And what part does the disappearing of Desdemona play into this?
This is my submission for the Game Chef 2011 contest, and my first design ever:
Chef: Daniele Di Rubbo
Title: The Gentlefae of Cremona
Elevator Pitch: The PC are exiled Fae who forswore their Oath. Can they restore their Nature or find a new Path? And what’s the role of Desdemona in this?
