ngdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is an action RPG set in the fantasy world Amalur, which is divided into several kingdoms. It was once a peaceful world until Gadflow, the new king of the Winter Court of the magical Faelands kingdom, marched with his followers – the Tuatha Deohn – to wage war against the young races of Amalur. He believes a new god called Tirnoch is to be born in the East. The conflict is a hopeless affair for the other races as the Fae revive after death. The player controls the protagonist called Fateless One from a third-person perspective. Ten years into the battle he (or she, the gender can be determined after the introduction) falls in the conflict and is carried away into a mass grave. He awakens however and discovers he was revived by the the gnomish scientist Fomorous Hugues through an experimental Well of Souls. He has no memory of his life and when the facility is attacked by the Tuatha Deohn, he has to flee. Once back in the world he learns from Fateweaver Agarth that he is the only one who has been able to escape fate, the predestination all individuals are subjected too. His initial goal is to find back Hugues to find out more about the experiment, but the search soon expands in a larger story involving Gadflow, his minions, and the new god.
