Seven decades ago, there were cities upon cities,
kingdoms and nations. Cultures at war and at trade. Humans, dwarves, elves,and
others. So it remained for millennia, through two vibrant ages called
ascensions.

Until the world ended. Nations
crumbled. Magic sputtered. Nature sickened. Civilizations
died.

The dead
woke.

Some say the doors to the Underworld
flew from their hinges. Others believe that the god of the dead went mad.
Whatever the cause, across the lands of Zileska, the dead have become the Dead.
Whether human, elf, dwarf, or monstrous ghûl, all must survive the horror
of this world overrun by death, where all that’s left of civilization has
gathered behind the walls of the world’s last bastion of the
living...

The city of
Redoubt.

The Lost Citadel is a transmedia
setting that exists simultaneously as gaming, art, fiction, music, and more. The

Roleplaying.

In this setting, you play one of
the only remaining souls alive after an undead apocalypse has brought

Blando.

Will you pledge
yourself to the noted foresters and venture bravely beyond the safety of the

within.
