    A Fateful Force Origins Story: A time before grand adventures and ancient evils.

    Struggling to come to terms with her lot in life, Akke believes beyond hope that she is destined for something greater than to live out her days as the life of a street rat.

But are dreams only for fools and the desperate? And is she just trading one set of shackles for another?

    Street gangs, corrupt merchants, and a powerful thieves guild. What could go wrong?

    Fighting orcs and hobgoblins on the frontier have seasoned Akke, but her return to the city of her birth could prove just as challenging.

    In a race against time to rescue an old friend, Akke and Ailuros land in the middle of a brewing gang war, where a person’s safety must be bargained for with more than just gold.

    But Akke must be careful what she promises and to whom, for dangers lurk everywhere. Some of them harder to see than others.
