Well, we still don’t know if Ascent: Infinite Realm will be free-to-play or not, but what the heck? There’s news. Recently, the developers decided to drop a post on the forums detailing some information on the game’s two factions, the Vulpine, and the Ontari.
The post offers information on the origins and history of each faction. For instance, the Vulpin are from a southern area once known for agriculture. They valued water highly and their banner colors still represent that.
The Ontari, on the other hand, come from a more mountainous region and were skilled hunters. They use the color red on their banner to symbolize the heart of those they hunted. Prior to the establishment of what is now known as the Solumn Empire, they held quite a bit of land and had a powerful army.
The Solumn Empire mentioned above was formed by the coming together of both groups, but it didn’t last.
