Echoes of the ancients’ power are distant memories, tattered and faded by the passage of eons, but that is about to change.
A new dawn has arrived. Latent abilities, harbored in mankind’s deepest fibers, wait to be unleashed. Ancient evils awaken, and old fears ignite the fires of war.
In times such as these, ordinary people have the power to save the world . . . or destroy it.
Life is the greatest of all mysteries, and though I seek to solve its many
riddles, my deepest fear is that I will succeed.

reaches of the solar system. Their light had already charged the atmosphere
of Godsland, and the comets themselves would soon be visible to
the naked eye.
The cycle of power would begin anew. Radiant energy, though still
faint, raced toward Godsland, bearing the power of change.
