About Table of Contents Reviews


The rust colored lands of Osnein are rich with artifacts and old-world technologies highly valued by the various kingdoms inhabiting this world. Though many individuals make a living off what they can scavenge from ruins above ground, the true wealth lies beneath in a iron labrynth known to all as 'The Network'.

Empires and Kingdoms from all over value the treasures hidden within the depths, however entrances to The Network are far and few and rarely explored as metallic entities known as the Jötnar guard its very depths.

Seidr, also known as sorcery, is the foundation of what humanity calls their power in what they refer to as the art of 'Kindling'. To Kindle means to set the soul aflame, it is to borrow power from the Goddess Oracle herself and the world around us. It is this energy which enables all who are born of the goddess to use Kindling, the ancients referred to this energy as Thorium.

Among the many who can kindle are a special breed of individuals known as Salvagers. Whether it is in the pursuit of knowledge, artifacts of power or immeasurable wealth they all risk their lives in an effort to explore the perilous depths of 'The Network'.

Wandering this vast region, with no place to call home exists a curious individual by the name of Grit. Incapable of Kindling, he possesses a lineage mostly forgotten that he seeks to better understand. The fate that awaits him is likely one he never imagined for himself as he journeys to unravel the secrets of this world.
This story may contain gore and use of profanity. This world also uses a hard magic system.
