Hypnotic fuzz fills your mind as you awaken— protracted cascades of synthetic drones and warbling beats fill your consciousness as you transcend into this new reality. Mysteriously vast and luscious, the landscape of the new world stretches lazily on before you… hued by its own discordant lighting— inviting you deeper into its grasp. Adjusting your stance, the grip upon your blade tightens as you set forth into the unknown. An infinity of possibilities lie ahead, ones ripe with knowledge, XP, and the powers that only a hero could conquer. —Awaken— your journey begins now!
