Codex Eternal: Gjallarhorn

By

Horizon's End is proud to announce the next installment in the ever expanding world that birthed The Great Gaias, Codex Eternal. The next chapter of this epic is called Gjallarhorn, and it aims to create a completely subjective experience for the player, allowing for the choice of joining one of multiple factions, or fighting for yourself in this slave-to-champion turn based role-playing game. Originally created as a Dungeons and Dragons Campaign Setting, this epic tale will continue the dark, yet engrossing stories within The Great Gaias. Gjallarhorn will expand on job class mechanics and a sandbox style crafting system that will provide a near infinite amount of customization between gear, class, abilities and allies. Trapped in the frigid lands of the Gorgath Mountains, you will create your own ill-fated character, destined to become a slave to the Osirian Empire. As you take on job classes and earn fervor with the slave master, an opportunity for freedom arises when the Gladiator Arena is reopened during an ancient rite of choosing a new High Chieftain. Five factions forming the Osirian Empire seek to see their Champion as the High Chieftain. Their unique views on the direction of the Empire leaves the fragile relationship of a newly unified nation in the hands of the player as the choices and allies you make will rock the very foundations of the leaderless country. Create your own custom character as you fight for your freedom, unlocking (16) job classes to learn and master as you build your hero to fit your personal playstyle. Craft customizable gear for (16) equipment slots with endless options and augments including gems, runestones, and monster abilities. A day and night cycle sets the tone for the expansive hunting and gathering systems in place within Gjallarhorn. It will be up to the player to fill their bestiary with valuable knowledge pertaining to fishing, poaching and monster habits in hopes to find all the best, and rarest, crafting components. The combinations are limitless when it comes to party composition as you find animal companions to tame and interesting mercenaries each with their own stories and goals for you to help (or hinder). With so many complex decisions and event changing choices, it is impossible to see everything the first (or third) time around as you choose which faction you wish to side with (or none at all). We will be announcing a crowd-based funding for additional features via Kickstarter, (Likely in November), to help bring more art, music and mechanics to the table. However, fear not, regardless of getting Kickstarter funding, this game will aim to be released in quarter one of 2020. We are eager to bring the next great story to you, and remember, where the horizon ends, the journey begins! …More »

Crafting, an Alpha Version

By

After many months, our crafting system is finally finished and fully implemented into the game! Dispatching enemies will yield skins and various useful materials. Veins of ore lay buried deep within subterranean caverns found throughout the vast mountainous regions of Tenat. When these items are used in conjunction it is possible to craft superior armor and weapons. Recently, because the main story is nearing completion, we've taken a step back and dug into fixing many issues that have been around for a while; specifically formally persistent bugs, graphic modifications, and tweaks to the battle system to help balance it further. Now, with those out of the way, we are beginning a closed distribution of select alpha versions of the game with the intent to help us find and fix any remaining bugs. This is a tremendous step forward, as we continue the development process of The Great Gaias. …More »

Build Your Own City Sidequest

By

We are proud to announce the completion of the Build Your Own City sidequest! As a player you will be able to find inhabitants for a newly established city. As mayor of the city, you decide what kind of citizens will live there, and what kind of city it will become. Merchants, crafters, witty denizens, all over the world you may discover potential citizens for your city who seek to find a new home. Outcomes differ depending on how you populate your new city. For example, if you allow in too many brigands, you may find your city has become a rundown slum, or that a casino has sprung up. However, if merchants and craftsman populate your city it may become a bustling center of trade, and you might find rare items trickling in from the far corners of the world. Or perhaps you prefer a little political intrigue in the vein of Game of Thrones? Recruit enough nobles and politicians and before long you may find yourself thrust into a nest of vipers as a Machiavellian battle for political dominance unfolds. There are many possibilities, each with its own rewards, but one thing is certain, you will have to try many combinations to receive all of the benefits that this sidequest has to offer! …More »

New Talent Joins the Team

By

It's been a long time since our last public update, however we've been steadily chugging along here at Horizon's End and making spectacular gains in the development of our old school RPG game The Great Gaias. We've finally completely woven our biography system into the game. Our painstaking efforts to detail the background stories of every character of significance has paid off in the form of this feature which has come to be our pride and joy. Each character's biography is cataloged and updated after discovering new information about what roles they play throughout the story. Also, recently we hired two new artists who have brought their unique and wonderful styles to our project. Elisa Herrera, also known as Sukihi, has taken over as our portrait artist, and Madalin Vlad is currently developing our custom user interface. Please check our links to samples of their incredible work! …More »
