In an era of steam tech, magic and swords, there are four forces: The Hope, The Despair, The Fury and The Insanity. The Hope represents light, goodness and all that is holy in the world, The Despair represents shadow, darkness, evil, and sadness, The Fury represents rage and power, and The Insanity represents madness, unpredictability, and chaos. Each force has their own colours, for example The Hope's colours are yellow, white and gold, The Despair's colours are black, grey, and purple, The Fury's colours are dark red and silver, and The Insanity's colours are dark green and dark blue. Each force is vying for supremacy over the world, and they each have their own minions to help them do such a thing. The Hope's minions are called Lightbringers, The Despair's minions are called Sorrowites, The Fury's minions are called Ragers, and The Insanity's minions are called Madthings. There are also some humans who have offered their servies to the forces, for example my character, Ryong, rejected The Hope and was engulfed by The Despair.
The force's minions also have several types, for example there are Knight Lightbringers, Assasin Sorrowites, and so on.
