The Core Concept
Fog & Silver is set in a fantastic, mystical, and dark reimagined Europe of the late 19th century; with a focus on visceral combat, powerful items and in-depth character customization.
The player experiences this time of mystery and innovation as a famous person from history or literature, also known as an Exalted. To battle a mysterious foe trying to wipe out Exalted, they will assemble a highly capable team of fellow Exalted.
All of this takes place both on board the huge zeppelin The Flying Ferdinand – and in a variety of European capitals of an alternative late 19th century.
In the world of Fog & Silver, the most advanced technology of the Victorian era and the occult forces from beyond the veil coexist. You experience this wild time of innovation and mystery as an Exalted. One of the most powerful and extraordinary individuals this era has to offer, like Nicola Tesla, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or Madame Tussaud. You are the pinnacle of your field and near untouchable for mere mortals.
But there is a deep rift between followers of Technology and the Occult, forcing everyone to pick their side in a struggle for supremacy. Worse even, someone has found a way to threaten the nigh invincible Exalted themselves. Being an Exalted yourself, you must ensure your own survival by gathering a group of other Exalted and combat this threat before it destroys you and throws the world into chaos.
The Exalted are humanity’s finest in their fields of expertise; living legends among the common man. Inventors, scientists, scholars, even wielders of supernatural powers. However they are not the most team-centric of individuals.
It is the task of the player to gather these paragons of humanity, earn their loyalty and unite them against their common enemy.
They are valuable assets throughout the game, and help the player achieve their goals through their unique abilities.
Cultivating the allegiances of The Exalted unlocks additional player-skills, and branching storylines.
The Flying Ferdinand
The Flying Ferdinand serves as a player hub. It is the living quarters, crafting station, mission deployment area, as well as the epicentre for story progression. In addition, it is the primary mode of transportation for the player.
Additionally the Ferdinand’s abilities can be called upon during ground combat allowing players to harness it’s vast arsenal; potentially turning the tide of a battle.
