The Presumptuous Circle
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind – three years after the Scarlet Empress vanished.
The Great Forks Project was a dream, given form. Its goal: to prevent another war, by creating a place where humans and spirits can work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call – home away from home – for diplomats, Fair Folk, exalts, and wanderers.
Humans and gods, living in two million, five hundred thousand tons of ancient jade… all alone in the east.
It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace.
This is the story of the last of the Great River cities. The year is RY 765. The name of the place is Great Forks.
