Will Aya, her new slave, silence this longing? Join us as this fictional version of a real woman takes you into her world and captures your heart….

Captain Riven Grimrock of the good ship Rattledower was doing well for herself. She had a fine ship with the best crew in the lands, and the loveliest lass on her arm. The sea was fair, the wind in her favor, and the hold runneth over with the spoils of their brave exploits. But everyone has to sleep some time.

Down in the Mire, the only thing worth living for is the one thing you can never have: escape.
That’s why the elite created Eternal Beyond, the hit fantasy cyber-reality game played by millions of jackers every single day. After all, no one can jack out of reality, but with Eternal Beyond, you can jack into a better one.

And the only way into the system…
…is to play the game.
