Athia is a sprawling, magical world filled with adventure and discovery. On her quest to save this mystical land from the Tantas, Frey will uncover a variety of interesting detours, formidable challenges, and even a few delightful encounters.
Some Detours are provided by Athia’s locals, who are in desperate need of Frey’s help. While other points of interest can be found via marked locations dotting the vast landscape.
Certain monuments will present challenges called Flashbacks, that can earn Frey mana or other rewards upon completion. These can be attempted directly from the world map and can be repeated as many times as she needs to fully master them.
Old Coins are a valuable commodity in Athia. Frey can collect them on her journey and then exchange them at Trading Spots for valuable items.
Saving Athia is a serious undertaking, and Frey will need a break from time to time. She can play a game with Partha: dice-like objects made from animal bones. Rolling them is said to bring good luck… and can earn Frey a temporary battle boost.
Frey will also encounter some furry friends, known as the Tanta’s Familiars. These feline creatures usually roam around special monuments dedicated to them but can pose quite a challenge to befriend.
With so much more to uncover and experience in Athia, Frey will quickly learn that this magical land — and its inhabitants — are indeed worth fighting for.
