This world is a harsh and unforgiving place.
Its people have to fight for every scrap. Tenacious tribes, nomadic clans or those huddled in the shadow of those with power... they're all caught in a cycle of war and violence, to wrestle from the land what little sustenance it provides.
Two old friends want to break that cycle and create paradise amidst the desolation. A tempest of change is brewing on the horizon.

Factions and Heroes
In the world of A Year Of Rain, three unique factions find themselves in a struggle for power. Each faction features three powerful heroes to spearhead your armies.
House Rupah is led by an ambitious man from the northwest, called Jaidee Rupah. He is ready to claim unclaimed lands to make a name and a legacy.
The Restless Regiment. Led by the infamous Lady Llorona, they all dance on her strings and either serve her in mindless obedience or zealous devotion fueled by singular, driving purpose or the torment of martial memories.
The Wild Banners are a coalition of nomads, hunters, tribes, forgotten and fallen civilizations as well as lone wanderers. They chose not to belong where so called civilization thrives. They are beastly savages for some, and tenacious survivalists for others.
