Riese - Steampunk Epic coming to SyFy

"In a decaying world, a lone wanderer could save them all.  
Unless they find her first."

Riese.  The Canadian steampunk/fantasy series, Started in November 2009, will air on the SyFy channel.  It had a loyal following on the web before the show's marketers forced the writers to take it down pending its' release on SyFy.

According to the official Riese site: "Riese is a fantasy-adventure based web series that chronicles a mysterious wanderer named Riese, (portrayed by Chatelain). A life-on-the-run from a world with a dim future, Riese and her trusted wolf companion, Fenrir flee their dying land of Eleysia in search of freedom as they are hunted by assassins of ‘The Sect,’ a terrifying religious entity. As she tries to piece together her mysterious past, Riese will take on a life and death journey with the balance and the fate of the world lying in the palm of her hands.

Narrated by Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary), the 10-part series stars a cavalcade of talent from the world of popular speculative drama including Christine Chatelain (The Bone Collector); Sharon Taylor (Stargate Universe); Ben Cotton (Harper’s Island), Allison Mack (Smallville); Ryan Robbins (Caprica); Patrick Gilmore (Stargate Universe); Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica) and Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary).
The series will also be available via Sony’s PS3, Microsoft’s Xbox and Amazon."

Some links with information on the show:



I, for one, missed the episodes when they aired on SyFy, so I searched for a way to see them, and found it!  The episodes are eight to ten minutes long.

Watch all of the full episodes of Riese HERE.

While waiting for the epic series to be televised, you can supposedly play the alternate reality game (ARG) from the domineering Sect's point of view on thesectishere.com.   More of a resistance fighter?  Then you may solve the riddle at the first site and and aid the resistance at thisisnotthepath.com (this site was not functional when I went there).  To do either, you will have to filter through pages of frightening pro-Sect propaganda; I did not find the actual game, but more persistent folk should be able to do so!

 The most useful and informative source of information I found was the actual blog for the show. 

Huzzah for a steampunk show on a major network!  Best of luck to them, and I hope to see the show soon!
