The World

The world of Everden is vast, and filled with magic, mystery, and adventure. It is home to people who resemble the birds and animals of our world. Our story begins in one corner of this world, a land called Humblewood.

In the world of Everden, nestled between the mighty Crest mountain range and the vast marshes of the Mokk Fields, lies a mystical forest known as Humblewood that hums with the Great Rhythm of nature. It has been ruled for generations by the birdfolk who inhabit the Great Tree-City of Alderheart. Humblewood has endured for centuries thanks to the industry and compassion of its people...

...but now the fires have come, and the Woods have been thrown into chaos. Flames ravage the land and destroy the homes of the humblefolk, stoking a growing resentment against the birdfolk, whose cities have managed to avoid the worst of the fires so far. Hatred burns in the hearts of those who have lost lives they cherished, and these once peaceful peoples now take up the sword and turn to banditry. The disaffected turn their gaze on Alderheart, and threaten to reduce an age of peace to ashes... 

...yet there is still hope. Even in these dark times, brave heroes can be found within the Wood. Only they can quell the raging flames that have been unleashed upon the land, and restore balance to the realm. Will you answer the call?    

Residents of Humblewood

The Birdfolk 

The birdfolk races have ruled over Humblewood from their canopy villages and fortified cities for as long as anyone can remember. Play as one of the five core birdfolk races:

  • The astute crow-like Corvum who safeguard Humblewood’s knowledge
  • The dignified fowl-like Gallus who have faith in the power of community
  • The aloof pidgeon-like Lumas who use their gifts to bring joy into the world
  • The agile hawk-like Raptors who blaze new trails through the forest
  • The powerful owl-like Strig who defend what they believe is right

The Humblefolk

The humblefolk live in small villages throughout the Wood, but are occasionally found in birdfolk cities. Play as one of the five core humblefolk races:

  • The hearty deer-like Cervans who strive to achieve their goals 
  • The sensitive hedgehog-like Hedges whose empathy lets them see what others cannot
  • The brave mouse-like Jerbeen who inspire those around them with deeds of heroism
  • The resourceful raccoon-like Mapach who can craft a solution to any problem
  • The cunning fox-like Vulpin who are always one step ahead of their foes

The Bandits

Once a loosely organized confederacy of crime, its ranks have swelled with humblefolk displaced by the spreading fires who have turned to banditry to survive. Under the guidance of a new leader, they seek to exact retribution upon the birdfolk cities and sow discord throughout the Wood.

Monsters of Humblewood

The Oozes

Deep within the murk of the Mokk Fields live several species of this most resilient life-form. Battle your way through caustic slimes whose touch is a deadly acid, sticky slimes that can suck a weapon right out of your hand, and the rare shifting slimes which feed on magical energies to become ever stronger. 

The Beasts

Humblewood is home to a variety of beasts whose size, strength, and abilities can only have grown thanks to the Wood’s magic. Face craggy skinned mountain lions whose roar can summon rockslides, hunt the deadly forest prowlers in their woodland lair, and tangle with the giant sea monster (art coming soon!) in a battle on the high sea!

The Elements of Flame

The great calamity which produced the part of Humblewood known as the Scorched Grove also made the area an ideal home for fiery creatures. Withstand the searing heat of an emberbat swarm: a vortex of tiny flying creatures, each one a smouldering ember with wings! Confront the terrifying ashsnake and it’s deadly pyroclastic breath! Legends say there may even be a primal elemental force lurking within the Scorched Grove. Have you the courage to find out?
