The world is a dangerous place. There are people who can do perilous, and yet wondrous things when their eyes are alight. The energy of the Miasma flows through their bodies like dark, unpredictable magic. Yet they, the Afflicted, are just the tip of the iceberg. There are horrors lurking in the darkness of the Void, whispering just beyond earshot... In a futuristic world where Emperors, Dukes, and Knights, use anti-gravity drives to power skyfortresses, and the ghostly Eidolon form their bodies from invisible clouds of nanotechnology, a conflagration that has been waiting to ignite for a thousand years is on the precipice of being loosed. Most wish to douse the flames, but there will always be those who just want to watch the world BURN.
