Description[edit | edit source]
When an earthling awakens in the middle of Revion Prime, where the greatest massacre of the galaxy has occurred, one should not expect him to go very far. Not if all the animal life of this place wants to shut his noisy heart up and finally go back to sleep above the corpses of endless nameless races that rot under the sky.
But who is this person? And why is he or she so far from home? The Earth is just a distant memory, there is no crew and the resources are nearing the end. Wouldn’t it be easier to hide and die in silence inside the shelter of the ship’s remains?
Story[edit | edit source]
The exact location is a mystery. The star maps were lost and after the Nikiderma invaded it, very little can be said about that planet. Its star is called Nynfeid. As neighbors, it has four gas giants. The corpses of its people were expelled from its atmosphere, so their mass decomposition wouldn’t alter the ecosystem.
Being alone in Revion Prime is like having been forgotten by life. But today, something extraordinary is about to happen. An earthling wanders through that unwelcoming environment. As he stood up, he had no idea where was his crew was or why he got there. For what reason was he the last to be awaken from cryogenic slumber? What went wrong with the mission? With no answers and no hope, looking for the others could be his last choice…
The Dolmen’s story may be comprehended as an investigation focusing the past and present of an alien planet as seen through the eyes of a human being. Although his original task was very different from this, he has been brought to a place never seen before, with no resources and unprepared for what he will find there. Exploration and adaptability shall be used to unveil some truth about what really happened to him.
That’s when the game begins. In a dark place, miles away from the surface of that strange planet, inside the caves which once were part of an evolved society. A society that no longer exists. There’s just a lonely person, from the distant Earth, trying to be part of that place to survive it. He’s the only witness to what’s left of something he may never completely understand completely. But he must either try or become a part of its remains. There’s no option.
Since the history of the human race is based on evolution and the ability to endure suffering, maybe he will triumph against adversity. Or maybe he won’t.
