Desecration of Wings is one of Sierra's side projects. It is more of an old school JRPG and Sierra stated it was one of her oldest projects, only recently rewritten and finished. There is a walkthrough and a secrets page on the wiki.
The Endless Court is eternal, ruled by Immortals who have guided the four races of the world since the dawn of time. But they seem very concerned with preventing anyone from studying the broken ruins that litter the world, and peace is more fragile than it seems.
Felana is one of the historians at the margins of society, oppressed by the anti-scholarship edicts of the Endless Court. All she wants is to take care of her daughter and study in peace... but as war brews among Immortals and her knowledge suddenly becomes troublingly relevant, she isn't going to have that option.
Relevant pages Edit
The game takes place on a world with a single unnamed continent, dominated by an Empire formed from several conquered nations. There is information that more once existed, but it has been destroyed by the time the game takes place.
The Empire is populated by four different races:
- Archeons: An angelic-looking people with white wings and usually fair hair and skin. They are one of the strongest races in the Empire. Their original homeland is the Nordeaux riverlands in the northeast, but they have since occupied the central lands.
- Draeons: The second ruling group, with dark bat-like wings. Red hair seems to be common among them. There are apparently several ethnic groups within the Draeons, leading to many different skin shades. Their homeland is the forests to the south.
- Teleons: Though one of the ruling races, the Teleons seem to take a secondary role. Many seem to be traders or take on administrative roles. They tend to have dark hair and tan skin. They are said to have vestigial wings, but these are never seen. Their homeland is the frozen regions to the east.
- Eleons: The lowest race, wingless and second class citizens. They can be identified by their pointed ears and odd hair colors (usually blue or green). Their homelands were the central regions, but following the war they were relegated to the wastelands in the west.
All four groups appear to be the same species, because they can have fertile children, but half-breeds are rare due to the racial tensions.
