Tales From Atlius
These are a series of short stories, excerpts and reports from the fictional world of Atlius.
In this world, Humans are the second most powerful species on the planet. They have evolved into intelligent beings, and have developed sophisticated and powerful technologies. Their society is varied and vibrant, with a common push towards achieving greatness. But this unity does not come from a sense of brotherhood or goodwill. It comes out of necessity. It comes out of fear. For the Humans share the planet with the all powerful Mirans.
Luminescent beings with beastly features, the Mirans wield god-like powers with ambivalent temperaments. They have the ability to bend matter to their will; to manipulate, create and destroy anything in sight in mere moments. The Humans call it magic. The Miran's call it their responsibility. They claim that they would never use such powers against Humanity except in self-defence, but there are those on both sides that question this assurance.
Between the Human stronghold of Novus-Kriyog, and the Miran dreamscape of Aadmira, is the Tilian desert. And in this desert, something stirs.
The tyrannical Doma have been defeated. The Human people are free. And for one loyal servant, the outcome is just as bitter, as it is sweet.
