There is very little that the regions of the Universe can agree upon. The Northern Wilds has their monster-hunting furor, the Western Wastes are known for their scholars and scientists, and in the Southern Frosts survival against the elements dominates daily life. But in all three regions of the Universe, children are taught the same lesson: do not enter the Wayward East, for that way lies madness.

But every region has its rebels. So here they stand, at the Eastern gates -- two Northerners, two Westerners, and a Southerner -- prepared to venture into madness themselves.

The truth is worth a little madness, after all. Unfortunately, it won't be a little madness meeting them out there in the Mirrored Plains; it will be quite a lot.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.
