The Veiled Sagas

On the Wrong Side of the Veil, things are different.

Beyond the Veil, through space and time, is a realm undreamed of. A place with the glowing eyes of a sorceress and the quaking wail of titans. The forgotten oaths of failed warlords and double-edged promise of cyberspace. A realm of monsters and magic, of blades and bullets, where kings and heathens rule.

Through the Veil, you have entered the Wrong Side.

Nothing is right anymore.

These are the Veiled Sagas.
