Legends of The People speak of a time before the Upheaval: the world sundering event that left a floating sea of islands ringing an exposed core. Long have they sought an end to the core God's wrath; but, the Taint, a devouring hunger born of the green world, has come to the many islands. The Cycle of Appeasement begins again, but is a world built on lies and corrupted truths truly worth saving?
