In the tiny village of Umbra, which basks in the shadow of an enormous and ancient tower, lives Andy, an unexceptional boy with no idea what he will do with his future. He is mediocre at all things
which are important to the townsfolk, but on the night of his seventeenth birthday he awakens to find himself floating above his bed. He soon discovers that the magical abilities inside of him have
awakened which sparks a yearning for mastery of his new abilities, but to do so he will have to leave the only place he has ever called home. He embarks on an adventure with his best friend Elly
with no idea what lies in store for him and virtually no knowledge about the world which he is about to discover.
