Embrace of the Fog (working title), also known as Tweed-Emblem, is a community-input, roguelite-styled adventure. Summon allies at random, empower them at your base, then journey through 3 acts of epic battles, strange events, and powerful bosses!
This project is defined as a community-input project, which is an experimental format somewhere between a full-on community project and a solo effort. The community (i.e., you!) pitches ideas for playable characters, items, events, and maps, and the Dev Team uses those ideas to build the game! This keeps a focused, centralized development team who can keep up a steady work pace, while engaging the community by having them contribute in a fun way (who doesn’t like being an idea person?).
The GitLab hosts the most recent version of the game files. If you have an installation of Lex Talionis, this is the version you want to play.

If you do not have Lex Talionis installed but still want to try the game out, below is a stand alone version of the game. This version will not be as up-to-date, but you can just download, double click the “double click to play file”, and enjoy the game!

The game follows a very light and fragmented story. A woman wakes up alone in a mansion surrounded by a dense fog, and must find her way out of… wherever this realm is.
At the base, the player is able to summon new permanent allies, upgrade allies permanently, read up on lore, unlock new game systems, and more! Once ready, the player can then embark on their journey, selecting any 4 allies they own as their starting team.
Each room will give you 3 choices. You must pick one of them to proceed. Many of these choices will be standard FE-styled fights (though smaller in scale) that will grant EXP, Items, and Currencies. You may also encounter Camps, where you can heal and summon new temporary allies, Shops, to purchase items, and Events, where anything goes!
The game currently consists of 3 Acts, each one of which is 15 rooms long. At the end of each act, you will face a trial and boss fight. See if the team you’ve built can take on the danger of the fog!
- 130+ unique characters, and counting!
- 60+ different maps, also counting!
- 3 Acts to test your mettle against
- A free-roaming base camp
- Permanent upgrade systems for characters, systems, and more
- A unique “Support” system, where you can call in aid to escape battles, remove enemies, and more
- A story, technically
