Real Beasts

In cooperation with the Museum of Kashubian and Pomeranian Literature and Music in Wejherowo, we have created a Kashubian fantasy world, unique and unprecedented in cRPG games. Based on the Pomeranian legends and records from the Fr. Bernard Sychta’s Dictionary of Kashubian Dialects, we have created a bestiary of the Kashubian mythical characters. We have built a world full of magical items, weapons and equipment. Real stories and fairy tales have been intertwined with the main plot.

True beliefs

Even at the beginning of the 20th century, in Kashubia, there were cases where the corpses of the deceased were dug up and their heads cut off. People believed that these were the so-called wieszczi or òpi, who – after death – rose from the grave to kill members of their family. After death, the man was closely watched in the coffin – when he turned red in the face, a piece of a fishing net – among other things – had to be put in his casket, so that he could keep himself busy untangling the knots, or a page from a prayer book with a litany on it, but without the word ‘amen’, so that his prayer would never end. Òpi, on the other hand, was born with two teeth that had to be knocked out immediately. If òpi came out of the tomb and rang the bell in the church, everyone who heard the sound – died.

Monsters in the Game

The 3D monster models in the game have been carefully selected and are from the Unreal Marketplace store. For the prototype of the game, we created 21 illustrations and descriptions of monsters based on Kashubian beliefs, prepared by historians from the Museum of Kashubian and Pomeranian Literature and Music. We hope that – with your help – we will be able to raise funds to create additional unique monsters in 3D.
