"Kill them all".sounded in Alyra's head, but wait wasn't she supposed to be the hero. Why should she be the one to kill her friends, but more importantly why does she want to?


Alyras choice was simple, end the world, or allow a demon of madness to torment her people for all eternity. They both sounded terrible, luckily she was crazy enough to not care. Fame had a much
better ring. However a smallfolk scout, a steam golem, an elven pirate and an O.C.D. gunsligers had other things in mind. Like not giving into such madness and stopping a cult trying to birth a
demon through a living god. Too bad they all can't stand each other.


Whispers, the voice beyond the veil calls to all, but only the mad listen, only the mad know the truth, the voices are right.
