Ascension Adventure


Ascension: Adventure is a retro dungeon crawler. It is a sort of spinoff of Ascension, fitting between the first and second games with little connection to either. It is based on Clint Bellanger’s Heroine Dusk.

Countdown to Adventure (companion)


It is five years after the people came down from the sky and changed everything you thought you knew. Some are already predicting that the Empire will collapse and kingdoms will fall. Some even say that magic will disappear. You don’t offer an opinion.

You’re an adventurer. You explore the unknown and you fight monsters. You’re a good one, maybe even a great one. You’ve done some good and made a name for yourself. In some parts, you’re even called a hero. Idarous, a town in Phellaes, needs your help. Something is grabbing people from the outlying villages at night. As soon as you hear it, you know there’s more to it than monsters.

The day of the adventurer is coming to a close. But it’s not over yet. You’ve got one last adventure ahead.
