Note: I'm Italian, so English is not my mother language. Please, be merciful with my subcultural English!

Premise: Desdemona – daughter of Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the Fae – has vanquished from their seat in the fairy realm. There are rumors she was seen around the Late Renaissance City of Cremona, Northern Italy (circa 57 miles south-east from Milan). The Protagonists are Fallen: exiled Fae who have forsworn their ancient Oath and thus banished on the World, bound in mortal flesh. They have the power of Nature on their behalf, but can they strive with their distrustful past? Can they make their way back to their Fae nature? And what part does the disappearing of Desdemona play into this?


No problems on the language...

Love it. I'm pumped to see games from Italian designers in general, and I like how this seems to be inspired by Shakespeare but the game isn't necessarily Shakespearean in play. If your post here is any indication you can write in English much better than I can write in any other language, at least. Don't worry about it! Good luck!

Shakespeare loved Italy so much, setting half his plays there, so it's only fair to turn things around and have Italians reinterpret Shakespeare!

Sounds great so far.
