The Assard of Great Peca are protected within his belly.
Assardi live in a stretch of country that covers most of the southern daylight hemisphere. While their civilizations are sparse, and Assardi themselves are still very primitive, they are one of the most populous races in the world.
The language of the Assardi is fairly simplistic, and their alphabet is entirely pictographic. The meaning of these pictures have been known to change over time, and are often interpreted wildly differently from settlement to settlement. Every Assard carries with them a journal to record their lives, draw the sights they’ve seen and mark the challenges they’ve overcome.
With hammer, chisel, paint and sweat, the first parents of Under-Great Peca left their mark in the belly of Great Peca, leaving a history that can still be read today. The greatest stories are immortalized forever. It is a great honor to have one’s stories be etched into the wall, to be remembered by ‘The Storytellers’ for the rest of time. It’s the job of the Storytellers to read the tales of eras past to the younger generation, to impart to them them the genesis and history of the Assard, and teach them Assardi morality, ethics and faith. Perhaps most importantly, they give the inspiration to their students that one day they too can be a part of the wall and join their ancestors.
A long time ago the world was smothered in heat unlike any felt in the present day. Whatever life was left on the planet had all but turned to sand. The gods, unable to bear the heat despite their power, seeded the land from the heavens and brought the various Assardi tribes a mushroom, which they took deep underground where they would be safe. From then on the Assard have always cultivated the mother mushroom, and its children called “spores of heaven” are the source from which all of the other mushrooms in Under-Great Peca are grown. The great fungi illuminates Under-Great Peca and are even the staple of the Assard diet.
Every Assard child knows this story. It’s been told to them a hundred different ways by a hundred different Storytellers. In time some of the Assard children will become Storytellers themselves and tell these stories to the next generation.
Because of schedule conflicts with Anime Expo and the 4th of July we decided ultimately to release our Patreon today! You can tell Seriva is excited about the news.
After the success we had with The Reject Demon: Toko we realized that a ‘pay what you want model’ works for us and people liked it. Though Toko was only made in about a month, it’s an idea I couldn’t do justice in just one short half-hour game.
Our big announcement is we’ll be continuing The Reject Demon: Toko storyline after the release of Dizzy Hearts in a comic format. The goal is to release monthly issues of X number of pages. You can read a teaser for it on our Patreon page and in the coming months you’ll start seeing more concepts, more teasers and more info about it!
We also have updates planned for The Menagerie, Dizzy Hearts and more. There’s some stuff on the Patreon you’ve probably not seen yet! So if you like what you see, you want to see us to more stuff, and show how ambitious we can get please support us! Thanks everyone!
