Gaia is an epic high-fantasy webcomic about a group of friends who unexpectedly become entangled in a chain of events that could result in war, or even a threat to life itself.

In recent years, tensions have begun to grow between Midgard, the leading nation since the two devastating wars at the end of the First Age, and Cania, the home country of Ilias Oter and his friends. Ilias, though, finds politics to be not nearly as interesting as his classmate Lilith Caillean, a beautiful and amazingly talented young wizard. There is just something magical about her… As the students of the “Academy for Arcane Studies and Material Arts” face the first serious test in their life, the final exams, they suddenly find themselves wrapped up in a web of intrigue and magic that could result in war, or even a threat to life itself. Now it’s up to Ilias and his friends to save what is most precious to them before time is running out. But is giving your “best” even enough when you have to deal with forces that seem to be able to move kings like pawns on a chess board?

Gaia is also a story about the answer to Lilith’s simple, world-shattering question: “Will you come along?”

The comic is based on a campaign which was developed by Oliver Knörzer (Novil), his mother Ute Knörzer (Milena) and some other team members as a mod for the computer game Neverwinter Nights 2 in 2004 and 2005. The project was eventually cancelled, but a large amount of dialog had already been written for the campaign at that point. The game’s content was eventually taken as source material for the comic. However, many changes have been made to make the story more exciting and to adapt it to the new medium.

The ending of Gaia is already written, but it will still take a lot of time to get there.
