What might men do with unlimited power? And what might they allow to be done?
Chem is the Mad Element. It is a blessing and a curse with as many names as shades and hues. Some call it liquor of the Gods or Blessing of the Benefactor. Those of the Red Guard call it Michael's Blood, but all names refer to the same element, a chemical compound with many pieces, or no trace on the periodic table.
