The last stop for independent sci-fi online
A sci-fi/fantasy web series chronicling the journey of a traveler named Riese.
A seemingly random wanderer, Riese flees across the dying lands of Eleysia with her father's wolf, Fenrir, at her side. On her trail is The Sect, a terrifying religious organization who scour the corners of the world searching for her. Sent by Empress Amara, new ruler of Eleysia, she and The Sect will stop at nothing to find her. Their reasons for hunting her, however, are unknown.
Her past is shrouded in mystery, as even Riese can’t recall the events that forced to flee into the wilderness. On her journey, she’ll find the determination to face her past, and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of the world in the balance – and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield. Despite the impending doom, Riese will emerge as the sole beacon of hope.
