Character-action set in ancient Swiss Gaul
Around a hundred years BC, all of Gaul is far from Roman control. In the lands controlled by the Helvetii, a Roman legion was subjugated by young warchief Divico, blessed by a ancient boon brought to him from parts unknown. However, this victory came at a great cost, as soon the result of the warchief's pact would turn into a curse; an ever spreading rot crawling through his land, and slowly corrupting his mind and heart.
With the help of the trusted yet reclusive druid Nammeios and the curious half-beast Renart, Divico sets his journey to undo the source of the rot and restore what was lost inside him. Through his own martial prowess and powers conferred by the old gods, the fight ahead promises to be intense.
