The Heart is a dangerous, unpredictable, mad place. Located beneath the mile-high city of Spire in the land of Destera, it is a rip in the holes between worlds.

Folk go into that place looking for something. Secrets of magic long-lost or never discovered. Spells that itch in your blood. Unknowable creatures to hunt and harvest. Somewhere to hide or start again. Forgiveness from a god that can’t hear them beg for it.

The haven of Refuge lies in a dark cavern deep beneath Derelictus, where the garbage of spire tumbles down into the swampy darkness. Resourceful colonists have built a town here, recycling trash into homes and tools, farming the damp ground, and carving out a life for themselves.

But threats lurk in the darkness too: the leathery godbeast of Rotmeadow, the Bad Omen of the hills, the station wireghoul. And that’s where you come in.
