From the introduction:
Your team was a contingency against global disaster. You were supposed to survive, and rebuild. You were put into a state of suspended animation. Technically, you were clinically dead. Then you were revived, brought back to life.
There was no magic in your long slumber, nor your awakening. Your blood was drained and replaced with a coolant, to preserve your body. If it hadn't been done just right, you would have never come back.
A tech-head would tell you that that none of what you see out here is really magic either. Rattle off some quote about how any ‘sufficiently advanced’ tech looks like magic. Maybe. But what about "sufficiently weird" tech?
It was hard to predict what the world would be like after the Event; but you didn't expect this, a land of mutants and... things. Hieronymus Bosch on LSD could not have dreamed up this place - a land populated by giant mantises with the faces of human children, sapient chords of sound, and beings even stranger still. A land where the hills have eyes… literally.
To those that live in this world, your civilisation is barely a legend. But you can show them that you are No Myth.
