         Storyteller Gnochi Gleeman bears the sole burden of humanity's forgotten past. For much of his life, he has recounted tales, enlightening his tavern-audiences of their forgotten roots. 
    
         Thousands of years after a cataclysmic war shook the Earth and nigh obliterated the human race, the descendants of those who survived have settled into new cities and formed new nations. These medieval societies are not completely devoid of "first age" technology, though an omnipotent cult of violent Luddites is actively attempting to erase every record of the first age. 
        
    
        
         Calm is the day when Gnochi wakes to discover that he cannot recall anything from the most recent months of his life. The only thing the bard knows for sure is that a group, called Anubis, has kidnapped his family and in order to see their safe return, Gnochi must kill in the Anubian name.
        
         People across the world are beginning to prepare for the once-in-a-decade winteryear. These maelstroms, only one of the "echoes" of the first age still present, have ravaged the Earth since it awoke from its nuclear slumber and recovered from its near destruction. Will proper preparations be taken before the Earth is blanketed in its yearlong snow?

It's intriguing. I envy your world building skills. Although he does smile a lot in the first few paragraphs for someone who doesn't smile much. Must really like this lady. :)
