Tyranny Scarlet Chorus Faction Profile

GameSpot has published an exclusive profile of one of the factions that players will meet in Tyranny, the Scarlet Chorus. Apparently, the Scarlet Chorus is special when compared to the other groups players might meet in Obsidian Entertainment's isometric CRPG because of its large numbers and the five gangs that compose it. Here's a rundown of a few of them:

  • The Horde: The Horde comprises the majority of the Scarlet Chorus. The unwashed, untrained masses fighting to earn their names. When a new conscript joins the Chorus, they must fight for everything. Food, water, shelter, even a weapon to attack the enemy with. All must be earned. The weak die quickly, and the strong rise to become gang bosses..
  • Blood Hounds: Blood Hounds are apprentice mages too weak or undisciplined to channel arcane energy via the sigils of mastery. Instead, they channel their energy directly, leaking a powerful--yet deadly--aura of energy called 'the Bleed.' This energy is corrosive to life, even the Blood Hounds themselves. The strongest of Blood Hounds can channel this energy to powerful ranged attacks.
  • Scarlet Furies: Scarlet Furies are the elite fighters of the Scarlet Chorus, trained to ignore pain and wounds to kill their targets. Fast and lethal, Furies dual wield weapons in a spinning, acrobatic attack style to confuse and disorient their foes.
