Detective James Baron became an outlaw after asking the wrong questions. After four years of running on land, he finds a new opportunity in becoming a pirate. The old man at the ship's helm tells
tales of a sea of mysteries; the Terminus. Intrigued and left without any other options, James sets out, bringing with him the five people who did not disembark.



On his journey across the ocean, he grows stronger, builds the trust and size of his crew, and discovers that his world is full of magic, chaos, superpowers, monsters, advanced technology, and
more. As he endeavours to solve as many mysteries that present themselves, he learns to appreciate the thrill of adventure and the unpredictable nature of life.
