Before everything, it's assumed there was nothing. But what if the difference between the two was only in the extreme philosophies of how little, or much, one cared?
The planet Huom has been under observation by numerous forces for longer than should be possible. The primary watcher, a bitter black-hole, is excited to see that there is finally a proverbial Darkness at the end of the tunnel.
On the continent of Sojurut, in the freezing mountains of Empris, the sorcerers' nation. The oldest living sorcerer suffers life threatening insomnia due to devastating nightmares. At the same time - far away in the sandstone desert of Zenon - a weird man is escaping a prison filled with old philosophers.
What does all this have to do with arsehole Gods, hairy Dwarfs, frustrated Afreets, curious Gnomes, lizard-women, and nude Áettar? Perhaps Nothing, perhaps Everything... but why can't it be both?
