The Fortress of Aer is an extremely dense city, with almost 60,000 affinity users living within its walls, counting only those here legally, making the number even higher… at least that’s what she told him.
He stared at the shocked faces of those all around him as he held the orb in his hand. As a guard ran off to call for others to confirm his placement, an eerie silence played across the room.
How had he gotten into this situation? Just a few minutes earlier…
Sitting on top of what looked like sheer cliffs that flattened into a massive mesa, Fortress Aer was larger than anything Ressen had ever seen before.
Ker-thunk. The sound of a round wooden wheel slamming into the ground matched a jolt across Ressen’s body which rejuvenated his consciousness.
The slow rhythmic beat of footsteps sounded under the red and orange forest, crunching dead leaves under each soft blow to the earth.
Two thousand years ago, a nameless hero sacrificed himself to save the world. And with his sacrifice came a world filled with Orbs – powerful naturally occurring sources of magic. His seven companions, his seven fortresses returned to this changed world, splitting it into seven kingdoms, changing it forever.
Exactly two millennia after the incident, the world remains heavily unchanged – and a mysterious boy is found in the deepest depths of the Wildlands. Quickly learning the rules of the world and more about himself – will the real truth be revealed, or will the peace of the land continue for another two thousand years in stagnation?
Inspired by Japanese light novels such as Overlord, Tsuki ga Michibiku Isekai Douchuu, and Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari, Fortress Seven is both a mixture of a Fantasy Adventure and Underdog novel that not only brings about the development of its characters but the development of an entire nation.
