You can run Æternal Legends without a lot of things. You can strip away the fantasy elements if you like, get rid of the elves and trolls. You can't do that to Ethos and Beliefs. They're the core of the game. Don't think what your character believes is important? Think cynical anti-heroes who destroy what they believe in are the epitome of cool? Æternal Legends will prove you wrong.
Characters in Æternal Legends have to give a shit about something. Even Darksiders know what they believe in — they are on a personal quest to obliterate their own individualism, feeding their power to the old gods imprisoned in the mundane world.
Go, read the teaser. Then tell me: What do you believe in?
