Hearts and Pistons: Return to the Wild
Always forward, never back!
Six years ago, the tyrannical imprisonment of civilization ended in an ecstasy of violence and change. No longer held among the high mountain peaks by the caustic brume, the people of the Hegemony struck out into the valleys below. No longer were the cities and their ruling mages the only means to sustain life. Now people could extract a living from the land itself, like the ancient days of legend.
Governments collapsed, unrest reigned, and a new religion arose, yet always onward the people surged. Towns were founded as the forests regrew around them, aided by the new magic extracted from the retreating brume. However, the people soon learned that the world below was not empty as they once thought. New challenges would be faced by all those that chose to return to the wild.
