Arvale: Journey of Illusion (from now on just Arvale) begins with a cutscene detailing the backstory of the world in which you, Duncan, an unassuming gardener, are living rather, well, unassumingly. The backstory details legends of dragons, magic, humans, and the conflict these all create. Typical elements of a classic RPG? Check. Upon entering into your new life, you are called to see the king, who quickly names you a Hero of Legend (we shall not give away any other essential plot information, so RPG fans, you can relax). Thus your adventure begins in this old medieval world full of danger and mystery.
