The emperor is dead. What’s left of the once proud Pilean Empire is under siege from enemies beyond its borders—and from within. Rival nations of Ommany, Thila, and Ud, along with the pirates of Brailee’s Steps, clamber to gain advantage in battles over the empire’s land and wealth. It is a time of war and strife, but also of discovery and opportunity. The race to control the north has driven progress in science, technology, and sorcery, all of which contribute to the chaos in their own unique ways.
But the empire only believes itself to be at the world’s center. Elsewhere, aquatic zealots plunder the seas and coasts. Young, progressive nations rise and gain power. In the untamed wilds, dark secrets and ancient ruins lie in wait. Musicians harness the power of magic through their songs.
And beyond the borders of the physical world, immortal demigods debate the fate of these chaotic mortals—and intervene at their tumultuous whims.
Life on the Pilean continent grows more interesting by the hour…
