An old world, so old that its memory is shattered, start over through its inhabitants' dreams, day after day. A wild territory, wandered by ferocious beasts which tread upon forgotten lands, full of ruins eaten by vegetation where chamans dance at the glow of a campfire. In the windings of the underground, squeaking gears, clickety-clack mechanisms watch, observe, organize. From his palace of Va'itu'a, Khan of the Eons keeps an eye on the Mists' progress and the flood of Forgetters, with anxiety. He hopes for true miracles from the Dreamwalkers, who have to dream up tomorrow's world.

You've got the power to change the world… take it !
