Before this world, there was another. The present world has no name, but its inhabitants knew the previous one as Dar. The present world is primitive by comparison, for Dar was a wondrous world where metal birds sailed the skies and metal fish swam beneath the seas. It was an advanced world of invention and innovation where brilliant minds sought to untangle the intricate riddles of nature and existence. These curious minds opened one too many boxes and unleashed the mechanism of their demise, a demise that was swift, ugly, and all-encompassing—or, so they believed. In desperation, they sought salvation by preserving a few volunteers in a suspended state, locking them inside a secret facility until some future date when it would be safe for them to re-emerge and repopulate the world.
