This is a game about ass-kicking and mad cosmic power. Each player represents a member of a highly trained secret society of martial artists and mystics known as the Brotherhood, trying to save humanity from the assemblage of mind-destroying alien horrors from beyond called the Drove. Reality pulses to the tick of a cosmic clock. Every eight hundred and forty-seven years the battle must be fought again, else reality as humanity knows it will slip away, to be replaced by something else. Now that the cycle is at an end, rumors have surfaced within the cloister that it is possible for one human, after surviving the battle, to sit at the throne and shape the cosmos for the next twenty-eight generations.
