After a thousand years of peace brought about by the new gods, terrible forces once again conspire to tear Harken apart. A magical blight called the Cloud turns the land to waste a little more each day. The remnants of a massive, alien vessel have scattered themselves across the surface, littering the world with strange, alien technology. The remaining races squabble over the surface area that is left, all while working furiously on great orbital habitat stations where their peoples can escape the increasingly hostile surface world. Tensions are high, as is the demand for exploration, innovation, and initiative. Will new heroes arrive to save the day, or is the doom of the old world at hand?
