In every world there are the players; listeners, doers and sayers. They are those who define their world as they build and destroy civilizations.
Yet there are other, more mysterious, players who have lived across the ages … undetected. Those are the watchers and takers.
In the world of Talor they are called the Genn. They have seen things that were veiled from everyone else and were the silent witnesses of the greatest mysteries of their world. Then, in their hands, forsaken legacies and wasted chances finally reside. Whenever something is deemed “lost” or “gone” it lies secured in the genn’s vaults. Genn are the greatest treasure hunters, assassins and hit-men in all the worlds of men.
Few know about their existence. Stories are woven and myths blossom around them. Yet there is a side to the genn that no one foresaw.
A wise genn once said: “Indeed we are takers, but we are a different type of takers. As we dwell on the fringes of lives which are not our own, lives we added nothing to, we tend to be the ones who appreciate them the most. What we collect are memories that are not ours, and then, alone, in the dark recesses of our cold lairs, we gaze upon our treasure. Night after night we watch those legacies as if by taking them we can be part of their story, and they can become part of ours. The purpose of our existence, my dear protégés, remains veiled.”
At the top of genn society is the Order of Sever, powerful and enigmatic. Very few are left in that ancient order at the time of our story but the greatest of them still lingers on… his name is Nymtha.
What he and his kin have seen would fill thousands of books. But regardless of this fact, he doesn’t realize that the greatest chapter of his life is yet to be written, when all the secrets Talor kept to itself for thousands of years are revealed… right before his eyes.
At the turn of the tide, when Talor changes forever, Nymtha gets his hand on the most coveted treasure. A treasure man long lost hope of finding. Now he is forced to make the choice every genn fears to face. After millennia in the dark he might be forced to run into the light … onto history’s stage.
