Once upon a time, Amir, Leigh and Robin lived in a beautiful city, where they made friends with amazing people and went to one of the most prestigious schools in Twistrose, the land of flowers. Their lives were practically perfect. There was no lack of places for our trio to explore. From the towering bio-organic skyscrapers to the slightly more rustic brick shophouses, the Twistrosier city of Hurtlespool had everything.

But three curious children can only stay in one city for so long. Thirteen years in, Amir and his friends yearned for adventure. And when their history project required them to travel around Orbana studying Angelic relics from the Old War, they jumped at the chance to fulfill their wishes. Great things awaited them - things that would eventually lead them down a rabbit hole full of old gods, ruined cities, dead angels and eldritch beings so powerful they could destroy Orbana in a day if they wished.

Maybe we should go into this blind. Completely clueless, like our intrepid trio of junior adventurers. Who knows? We might meet Death himself, or maybe one of Life's Angels. Perhaps even discover a city buried beneath thousands of tonnes of sand. In a new world like Orbana, many things remain to be discovered.
