✨ Synopsis

Junelight Re’Sha has tracked her son's kidnapper to a remote forest region of Royth. Here, a tribal community escalates its raids on a backwater logging village. She strikes a deal with the tribe's ruthless Head of Spark: help find her son, and she'll aid in their quest to recover a sacred weapon.

Everything goes to plan, until an overcurious raider crosses paths with an adventurous villager.
