How It Begins

You're a young ensign in the wreckage of an escape pod, stranded on the planet Runoma II. The lifeless body of your colleague lies crushed under the pod's torn door, while your lieutenant has slipped into a sleeping stupor; a spike has ground itself into his left shoulder. None of the other crew members made it.

The desert stretches away in all directions, with the wreckage of the Sirius Dream still blazing to the distant north.

You hear a faint, guttural droning.
