The Yarangan Union (YU) is a scientifically advanced nation based in the northern archipelagos, with unmatched naval power – fleets of advanced self-sufficient ships known as Umiaqs powered by Pelagium (a rare and powerful resource). In the past several decades the YU’s Pelagium research has rapidly advanced under the supervision of Toerwahn Tijksyn. With his recent disappearance, research has stalled. His daughter, Mira Tijksyn, is sent on an expedition escorted by members of the secretive YU Security bureau. There, she begins to understand the source of her father’s discoveries.
As players, take on the role of characters on both sides of the developing conflict and together uncover a vast conspiracy that threatens to bring the world into a devastating war that could destroy both nations, or worse.
