Bloodstained: Ritual of The Night Lore
The Industrial Resolution ushered in a new era that threatened to transform the values of men.
No longer would spirituality be their compass. But not all welcomed the change.
In 1783, just as the fires of the Laki Eruption had plunged all of Europe into an ashen darkness...
a horde of demons spilled from the shadows and fell upon city after English City. It was a message.
The Alchemy Guild, fearing the rise of industrialism and abandonment by their wealthy patrons,
had done the unthinkable to defend their existence.
Through recondite arts, the Alchemist had created Shardbinders: humans transplanted with crystal that attuned them to demonic power.
They sacrificed the Shardbinders, and in doing so threw the gates of the world open to demonkind.
Countless innocents died. And though the Church succeeded in vanquishing the hellsent,
a steep price had already been paid and collected.
As for the Shardbinders, they were presumed to have all died in the sacrificial rite. However, two survived:
Gebel, a boy whom, by some miracle, the rite did not prove fatal.
And Miriam, a girl who was spared the rite altogether on account of the strange slumber that took her just before it could begin.
Ten years have passed, and mindkind too soon forgets tragedy. The demons have returned, presaged by a great castle.
And on this very hour, Miriam awakens.
Upon learning Gebel is the architecht of this new, bloodstained ritual, Miriam and the Alchemist Johannes set forth for the accursed castle.
Their galleon guts through the water, lancing toward the inevitable...
