Since the old forum shut down, I wanted to copy and paste this and also add my own to give to my friends who don't know the story to get caught up. Soyul was the person who originally made this. Since I did read through the story a few times over I can answer some questions. I will continue to update this and make the paragraphs visually pleasing when I feel like it. Also, curse the low character limit.
(I'm sure there are grammar mistakes since I'm typing this as I go, so If there is any grammar mistake, please pm me so I can fix it. )
-Yo boatgod here. Playing again since Lethor came out. The summary is now up to S3 epilogue (One more thing. The official Vindictus Discord has a story channel that picks up after I stopped writing which is around the Arcana and Aiden stories. Be sure to check out Earl's write up of Season 3 chapters 1 to 3. Also, check out his write up of Season 4's story which is very well done.)

Season 3 Chapter 3:
Became a pervert and took a peek at a 10ft women bathing, killed a Moana Frog and touched the King of fomors seductively. Defeated yet another god, but went down like a baby when some redhead chick cut you with a sword and now a war between gods sprung up from your low pain threshold.
Season 3 Epilogue: WIP
Season 4: Woo some crazy stuff happens. Haven't finished the story for a TLDR of this. Of course, my TLDR is just comedic jokes that don't explain much of anything so.
This is only a summary that shows what each episode is about, but it should give you a good enough gist of it.Season 1
Nice little video to get in the reading mood.
There were strong winds. It was a rough and desolate land. People formed colonies to survive.
They had a reason to live. It was because of a legend.
Everyone lived with the legend in their hearts like a burning flame.
One day, they will go to Erinn.
One day, they will go to paradise.
For there was a promise, they waited.
Morrighan, the goddess who will defeat the Fomors and lead them to paradise.
It is said she had dark wings.
No one remembered how long they’ve waited for her arrival.
All they know now is the legend and the promise.
Destroy the Fomors.
Their blood will open the doors to Erinn.
When the last drop of blood falls
The goddess will spread her wings and stand before you.
The nights were filled with blood on the battlefield where many lives were lost.
But the goddess did not appear.
Perhaps the legend is wrong.
Or perhaps the promise has not yet been met.
(BoatGod: kill all fomors to summon Morrigan and give us paradise)
-its been a while, and we are losing faith in the prophecy-
The guardian spider of Colhen is out of control and heads for the bell tower. You, Marrec, and Aodhan go in with Tieve to try and calm it down. You find Gnolls and fomorian emblem inside. There were signs on the spider indicating that it was being controlled, but the spider is eventually killed. A mysterious figure watches from afar.
Ep 1: The Crimson Blades
Because of the Fomorian emblem and gnolls found in the bell tower, the fomors and gnolls are suspected of being up to something. Gnolls are supposed to be indifferent to humans. An investigation leads to the conclusion that the gnolls are preparing to attack and you eventually defeat one of the leaders, Gnoll Chieftain and they are held back.
Ep 2: Shadow of the Fomors
You find kobolds in the hoarfrost hollow and find out that the leaders of kobolds have been given instructions from Shakarr to gather and attack humans. You succeed in foiling their plan.
Ep 3: Piercing the Crescent Moon
You find out about the mysterious destruction of a town called Ainle. No one knows exactly what happened and the place is restricted from access by the Royal Army which is under the leadership of the Church. You investigate and find goblins and vampires from another dimension. You hear from town folks that there had been a large mana explosion coming from Ainle before the town was destroyed. Ellis, a naive cadet leader dies during his investigation of the town. It seems like portals have been opened that connects this world with another dimension. You find evidence of Royal Army’s participation but the investigation is halted as it seems to become more dangerous with portals opening on their own without any magic. Nyle, the mysterious robed man says he’ll take care of it instead. We still don’t know exactly what happened in Ainle at this point.
Ep 4: The King of the Gnolls
(fan art by Memorys)
You find documents that seem to suggest that the gnolls have allied with the Fomors. It turns out that there were two gnoll factions: The ones who wanted to side with the Fomors and the ones who opposed. Gnoll Chieftain was actually part of the opposition who played an important role in holding back the alliance and war with humans. But the gnolls, led by Black Scar is now free from the opposition and swears allegiance to Shakarr. They prepare to attack humans but you defeat the Gnoll King and they retreat back into the ruins.
Ep 5: The Lost Holy Artifact
I think this is the first time Tieve shows signs of sleepiness. Yetis are found in the hoarfrost depths. During the investigation you find kobolds. You are also given the task to find the stolen holy statue of the goddess from the Church. It seems like it was used to awaken the yetis. But you notice that it’s strange that the kobolds seem to know your every move. There is a suspicion that someone from the inside is leaking information from the Church. The statue is returned and because of your accomplishments, you are brought to Rocheste.
Ep 6: Colhen in Flames
You arrive in Rocheste with Gwynne. There is a report of Fomors preparing an attack at Fomorian Base. While you go investigate, Colhen is attacked. You go just in time to save Colhen but some people are missing. Tieve is found to be safe in the Temple but Clodagh is taken by Black Hammer. Shakarr ordered to kidnap Tieve but Black Hammer mistakenly took Clodagh. Clodagh is rescued by you and Keaghan. There is a conversation between Black Hammer and Shakarr and BH questions why Shakarr isn’t focusing on destroying humans and instead interested in Tieve. You can sense a bit of tension between the two
and 3 others.
