This is a (horror?) story set in the universe of Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine, and a sequel to my previous game, Gates of the Bleak Academy.
There is a Bleak Academy, a school beyond the world where students train in the arts of unmaking. They have caught the angel Jade Irinka, the angel of the houses of the sun.
The Academy has a new division, now, to keep her bound in chains and lies. This new division is known as the Keepers of the Sun. And you have been assigned to it.
It is not necessary for you to read Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine to understand this game, but you should probably know at least this about the setting:
Once upon the time, the Headmaster of the Bleak Academy and the Angel of the Houses of the Sun loved each other. But the Headmaster betrayed her, shot her in the side with an arrow, and so she fell into the void that surrounded the universe -
And the void boiled, and worlds drowned under the tide of it; only one island of reality remains that is not drowned in this sea, this “Outside”.
Some of the Riders from beyond the world count this as a victory. But others believe that they have not yet succeeded.
These Excrucians, these graduates and associates of the Bleak Academy, will not stop until they have seen all the world ended. For they believe existence - those of us who believe that we exist, and that we would like to continue existing - is a crime against the void.
