Welcome to the enchanting city-state of Carnas, a realm steeped in arcane wonders, governed by skilled magic users. Yet, beneath its cobblestone streets and towering spires lies an unexpected contrast—the Dragonschaft, a labyrinth filled with forgotten technology and mechanical mysteries. This underworld, teeming with monstrous creatures and remnants of an extinct machine-driven civilization, waits silently beneath the bustling life of Carnas.

Meet Rustar, a young adventurer imbued with curiosity. Bearing his father’s final words and a unique talent—the mastery of both magic and machinery—Rustar dares to venture into the depths of the Dragonschaft. His journey takes an unexpected turn when Persy, a fiery young woman wielding an ancient artifact, crosses his path.

With their destinies intertwined, Rustar and Persy delve deeper into the Dragonschaft. The resurgence of a mechanical civilization within its depths disrupts the magical balance Carnas has maintained for centuries. As echoes of a forgotten era stir, so too do the ancient gears of fate, thrusting our heroes into a quest that will forever alter their lives and the course of Carnas.

Prepare for an epic journey in ‘Gears of Dragoon: Fragments of a New Era’. Challenge the labyrinth, unlock the secrets of the past, and shape the future of Carnas.
