An old Cult Classic Brought Back for a new breath of life.

This Chapter is a Survivor Only Chapter as currently I haven't played or looked into enough of the source material to accurately choose a Killer Candidate. On top of that I think looking between all of the rigmarole the team would have to go through to get the license for this one, Survivor Paragraph? I don't want to talk about the problems with a license, lets talk designing this: I'm scared of these perks. flat out fear. All 3 introduce some of the most powerful effects that could be changed in the game, and I tried to keep them balanced. Not to say they are or are not but they're at least something.

Survivor: Alexandra Roivas

Alexandra Roivas is a student of abstract mathematics and number theory at a Washington university. One night she is awoken at 3:33 a.m. by a phone call from Inspector Legrasse who informs her that her grandfather, Edward Roivas has been killed and calls her to her family estate on Rhode Island to identify the body. After traveling to the estate and identifying the body Alex discovers that the Inspector does not know the cause of or any of the details surrounding her grandfather’s murder.  

Two weeks after the opening events of the game Alex begins her investigation of the Roivas mansion to learn more about her grandfather’s death. On the first floor of the mansion she discovers a hidden study containing a mysterious book known as the Tome of Eternal Darkness. From the tome Alex learns of the transformation of Roman centurion Pious Augustus into an evil liche, however a sizable portion of the tome remains missing.

Alex discovers multiple clues left around the mansion by her grandfather as to the whereabouts of the missing pages of the Tome of Eternal Darkness and using knowledge from the book, along with the mysterious power known as ‘magick’ she is able to piece the tome back together. The recovered missing pages allow Alex to relive the experiences of various individuals throughout the previous two millennia fighting against the forces of darkness. She also learns that Pious Augustus (who has lived for almost two thousand years due to his liche form) is plotting to summon an ancient into the world and doom humanity and that she is the only hope of stopping him.

Using a plan devised by her grandfather to foil Pious, Alex harnesses the magick of the City of Ehn’gha during a planetary alignment to cast a spell and summon an ancient to defeat Pious’. The spell teleports her to where Pious is summoning his ancient and their ancients do battle. The spirits of those who died fighting Pious also appear to aid Alex and after the fall of Pious’ ancient Alex defeats Pious himself and kills him with his own staff.

After the defeat of Pious and his ancient the world remains at threat from the ancient summoned by Alex, but the spectre of Edward appears and uses the magick of Ehn’gha to bind the ancient. Before leaving Alex, Edward tells her that he is proud of her and misses her. Alex narrates the ending of the game with her exact dialogue varying depending on the number of times the game has been completed. After completing the game under all three alignments Alex’s narration will lead into the epilogue.
