In a world seemingly void of magic and mysticism, a group of travellers is searching for answers. This late 1800s-style
reality sees each member of the expedition desperately seeking real-world resolutions to problems that seem wholly unnatural, and unique to each individual. The only things pulling this motley band together are the promise of an expert of the occult living in the far east, and the Millikins, a prestigious family that has agreed to fund this expedition in exchange for the group’s protection.
Early into the journey, it is apparent there is another group travelling in tandem with the Millikin’s own. Their full purpose unclear, what is apparent is that their intentions are violentally opposed to the Millikin’s expedition.
