Altered Creatures have roamed the lands for thousands of years in Terra Australis.
Conflicts and battles have come and gone, and humans and polenums have built a wall to keep the deformed beasts away from the Great Lake of Life.
Only a few cities in the land still allow the creatures to visit. Shoreview is one of them.
The port city of Shoreview is wedged between Lake Luthralum and the northern bluffs.
Strangers arrive and leave every day to trade goods and services.
But this is no ordinary day, nor is it an ordinary stranger.
Three youngsters find themselves in a life or death situation after following a tall stranger who had obtained their stolen crystal orb.
Witnessing the tall cloaked man murdering an Altered Creature, the three young polenums take it upon themselves to find evidence to prove their case before bringing it to the law.
In doing so, they find themselves on the edge of being victims themselves.
