In this 1996 French RPG from MultiSim, players originate from the continent of the Rivages, declining from ageless strife between its competing houses. But 200 years ago, an enormous tidal wave was followed by the discovery of a new continent beyond the sea. This mysterious new world seems to be full of Loom, a fundamental component for creating magic rituals, which had almost disappeared from the Rivages.
While the houses continue their bickering, the colonization of the new world is put under the tutelage of merchant organizations called Guilds. But as the exploration of the new continent goes on, mysteries arise: the very center of the new continent seems to be protected by magical tornadoes which forbids exploration...
Exploration of the new continent, and unveiling the hidden origins of the great houses of the Rivages, whose origin all seemed tied in a way or another with the new world, are the main themes of the game.
