Enter a world in which Man and his kin are but the youngest creatures to claim mastery over their destiny. Strike out into a vast, untamed wilderness of savagery and horror, plumb the depths of vanished civilizations to discover their fatal mistakes, or rage against the tyranny of toil in the shadows of filthy, stifling cities, while hiding from the predators (human and otherwise) which stalk their midnight alleyways.
There once was a dream that was Man.
Will it vanish utterly in this terrible, new dawn?
