Some legends speak of the earth turning on us for all the wicked we wrought. Some say creatures, monstrous behemoths of the depths, rose and sought our utter annihilation. In others, humanity simply destroyed itself with its own sadistic ways. When our world darkened, however, something special occurred. Something changed inside us; something shaped our world's fabric beyond our mere five senses. Old fools' tales and wild, exaggerated fear mongering speak of such things - the stuff of curses and magic, known as Resonance. Our journey begins with Maledream, a young Tribal man who seeks relief from his dreary way of life in his camp. His life has been, so far, nothing but a meaningless and dangerous one. As with all paths in life, our destinations also change. When Maledream sets off to scavenge for scraps after an argument with his foster-father, he's alerted to the screams of a woman in distress. He answers the call, but what he encounters is a nightmare far beyond Tribal fables.
