Legends say the ancients controlled time, and built a world-encompassing civilization on that technology. Then, earthquakes, tsunamis, and storms hit the world - the whole world - all at once. All long-distance communications went silent. When the survivors climbed out of the rubble, they found they could travel only so far before encountering a mysterious and deadly barrier.
The date now is 1521.02.24, according to the Empire that rules most of the continent. The barriers have fallen, one by one, and the Empire is slowly recovering their ancestors' ability to harness time. A marvelous City of Lights is being built on a high plateau, but strange accidents are destroying the new buildings, waking superstitious cries about angry ghosts and sky demons. Citizen unrest is growing.
To the north, a small band of Empire explorers have found new land, unaware that it is already occupied by a small, isolated population of snow-unicorn riders, working under the midnight sun to store enough food to last through the long winter. Tragedy strikes, bringing loss and grief to both parties. Will the collision of these cultures answer their questions and offer salvation... or doom them both?
