In the days following the fall of the First Citadel, humanity's last survivors looked to their Saints for guidance through drought, exhaustion, and famine. And many, many years later, four humans and a lizard-bug-man-thing found themselves with a daunting task of their own: to make it through a family dinner without driving each other completely insane.

Which had it harder? It's a toss-up, honestly.

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