The Story

Choose Your Fate

Rogue to Redemption is the story of Shawn O’Conner, a young man living on the streets of Sardonia. On one fateful night, he is given the chance to make a new future for himself – or die trying.

The mysterious castle of Hero-University is full of danger, but also filled with opportunity. There are chances to make friends, acquire wealth, and learn the skills that a young rogue needs to succeed.

Shawn can look for romance or search for lost treasure. He can help others or focus upon his own goals. When he learns the truth of his father’s death, will he seek the path of vengeance or that of forgiveness?

The choice is yours…
