Paper Tiger Games released a new game called Rivers of Astrum and the version is 0.0.1a. The game’s story is about Our tale begins with Kimberly Ashmore, in the pirate-run town of Cliffperch. Orphaned by her parents at the age of three, she was dumped on the streets of this island slum. To this day she does not know why, nor does she know what became of her mother and father. As a result of her environment, she spent her youth learning to exist in the dark alleys and blind corners of the world. Always seeing. Never seen.
Through practice and necessity, she learned the arts of stealth, sleight-of-hand, and pickpocketing in order to put food in her stomach.” The guard has a permanent bounty on her persona, but not a single victim has ever caught her in the act. With no face to place on the wanted posters, the town simply began to refer to her as \”The Umbral Hand\”. The bounty stands today at seven thousand Kartisian Crowns. Her mastery of the scoundrel’s ways has allowed her to survive and thrive in a world where she was neither noticed nor wanted. She had always told herself that she would stop thieving once she had “enough, but it turned out to be an exercise in frustration to attempt to live life within the expectations of society. Living within the rules just felt so needlessly tedious. In her mind, it made no sense to spend your entire life working to obtain something the “proper way”, when you can simply steal it in one night. Only a massive windfall of wealth would make a “normal” life worth living. To that end, she always keeps her ear to the ground for the next rumor.
The next big score. There is an information network that spans the length of the city. Dubbed the Well of Whispers”, it provides information of all sorts, for any able to pay for it. And the Well had recently provided Kim with a potential motherlode. The talk on the street is that of a treasure beyond worth… sunken just off the coast in a vicious storm. If the rumors are true, then it is the kind of treasure that makes fortunes and establishes generational It is a long walk to the beaches of the Queen’s Coast – where the shipwreck is said to have occurred – and she wakes now to prepare for the journey.
