In Depths of Peril we present the background story a little bit different than most games.  Instead of a short boring blurb inside of a manual we have many tomes in the game that you can find and read more about the background history of Aleria.  Typically these are in short story form but there are also some histories and some myths.  Currently the stories amount to about 60,000 words (about half of a novel).  Of course, Depths of Peril is an action game, so the background stories are completely optional to read but they do tend to give more meaning to a lot of the monsters, items, and places in the game. 

Anyways, we plan on publishing many of these stories right here.  Up until we ship Depths of Peril we will probably publish a new story every week or two.

All stories were written by Delilah Rehm.
