The Rise of Darkus Synopsis
An abomination named Darkus rises from his cadaver table to take his first breath of life and plunge into the land of Remains; a world that thrives on law, order, and Sacred practices. He is quick to discover that he was designed by a humanoid named Azoth Tinkarius whom was banned by his kind for practicing reanimation, using all three practices (Mechanics, Biology, Alchemy) combine. The land of Remains only permits one practice per tribe and has banned the infusion of multiple, sentencing Tinkarius to death. Tinkarius goes into hiding wilds building an army of bizarre monsters, saving Darkus for last to lead the way. Instead of obeying orders Darkus paves his own path in search of his creator. Darkus must conquer his way through the dark world of Remains and prove his dominance over the cultures rich in greed and control to find his creator and unmask the truth of his existence.
