Sands of Aura
Save the World of Talamhel
A ruinous cataclysm unleashed by a tormented god descended the world of Talamhel into perpetual night. The hourglass of time was shattered and its essence poured across the land, creating an endless sea of sand. Talamhel became a putrid lesion of its former glory and those who called it home are now husks of corruption.
For generations, the righteous few have endured. You are one of those few.
On the eve of your induction into the Order of Remnant Knights, Talamhel is once-again wracked by calamity.
Track down the emergent evil and destroy it. Protect the realm of man.
Sail the Sands
From the helm of your grainwake, carve across the perilous sandseas to confront this newfound terror. Chart a course forward without a map or guide, choosing your own heading.
But the sands are always changing, revealing secrets, dangers, and paths unseen. Nothing is as it seems...
Talamhel is an open world, free to explore and discover
- Every island is a unique encounter of combat, lore, and plunder
- With tiered levels of difficulty, locations offer challenges that will reward those who overcome them
- With a trusted (undead) companion in the crow’s nest, you’ll never sail the seas alone.
Cleanse the Corruption
The corruption that plagues Talamhel has created a horde of man and others: venerable Ferrum and insectoid Hashara. Once-warring nations are now an abominable army.
The foes that guard the answers you seek are determined to see your end. Prepare for unrelenting, unforgiving combat.
With hundreds of weapon components to be reclaimed from the crumbled remains, thousands of unique weapons are to be forged.
- Cleave through corruption with 7 distinct styles
- Bolster yourself with dozens of armor sets, each with unique defenses
- Modify your devastation with augments, personalizing your build
Strengthen your Settlement
Starspire is the sanctuary that you call home, and it remains open to those you deem worthy, such refugees as you find on your travels. Not all are deserving, but each person could make Starspire stronger and safer.
An optional component, each choice is a test of your leadership and judgment, and will alter the story and affect your fate, as well as the fate of others.
- Starspire residents unlock perks: gifts, exclusive equipment, or unique services
- Discover the lives of others and decide their fate
- Become familiar with the grey area between right and wrong as you make your judgments
Symphony of Sands
The symphony of the sands are brought to life with an evocative, soul-stirring soundtrack composed and produced by the incredible Eduardo Lopez.
Sands of Aura will feature a fully symphonic soundtrack, with a wide selection of instrumentation--from the haunting strings of the antique Viola Da Gamba to the resonant thunders of a professional Bulgarian choir.
These are the unforgettable sounds of Talamhel. The score of a wounded world.
