The latest promotional reveal for Gunfire Games' upcoming Remnant 2 is packed with lore revolving around the world of Losomn that came into being when the game's Fae and Dran worlds merged together due to the machinations of the so-called Imposter King.
If you'd like to know more about how that happened and what that means for the upcoming action-RPG, you should check this out:
The Imposter King
The Imposter King's origins remain shrouded in mystery, but his treacherous deeds are well documented. He cunningly deceived the Fae Council and Nimue, a powerful Fae goddess, into believing that for the Fae to be free, the One True King must die. Instead of killing the One True King, he was sent into a deep sleep, from which he could not be awoken. In the One True King's absence, the imposter seized the throne. The attack on the One True King led to a forced merging of the Fae and Dran worlds, resulting in the imposter being split into two individuals - Faelin and Faerin. The Imposter King serves as a cautionary tale of the dangers of deception and the consequences of seizing power at any cost.
The Dran and Fae worlds merging into one world has caused chaos and confusion. The once human-like Dran have become hive-minded and are easily provoked into frenzies, while the Fae society has lost its direction and is plagued with a never-ending thirst for the life force of the Dran. The Awoken Dran, those who have remained unchanged after the merger, are seen as troublemakers by the rest of Dran society and have been punished for speaking out against the chaos. The Fae nobility sit restless in their halls, while banquet rooms are filled with rotted food. The merging of these two worlds has created a dystopian landscape that leaves many questioning if their worlds will ever be the same again.
The Nightweaver, once worshipped as the Fae goddess of sleep, has become a terrifying entity that haunts the nightmares of the Dran. With her powers over sleep, she feeds on the life force of her victims, leaving them drained and near death. The Awoken Dran live in constant fear of her, knowing that she preys on them while they rest. Her twisted form serves as a reminder of the terrible result of the forced merging of the Dran and Fae worlds.
