About Omensight

When the world of Urralia nears its end, that’s when your work as The Harbinger begins. You take on the impartial, and crucial, role of both warrior and judge to rewrite the destruction of your war-sieged world by identifying characters that may have played a part in the apocalypse. By understanding the events that pushed Urralia to its tragic end, you can manipulate time and circumstance to prevent the catastrophe.

  • Use the power of Omensight to weave a new narrative, pave the way to a brighter future, and give the world of Urralia a second chance.

  • Upgrade The Harbinger’s “warp flow combat” and time-slowing spells, then unleash them against enemies to devastating effect.

  • Recruit a colorful cast of characters in your mission to unravel the events that brought about Urralia’s end - Ally with a song-slinging bard, martial-expert army captain, or a beer-swilling bear, all with varying accounts of how the world met its demise.

Assets are available to download here.
