It is the Second Age of Man.
Once, the Scarlet Empress of the Dragon-Blooded held the Realm in an iron grip,
but with her disappearance, all hell has broken loose.
Civil war is at hand, and Demon Princes, Deathlords
and the inscrutable Fair Folk hammer at the gates of Creation.
Into this time of darkness are reborn the Solar Exalted,
heroes once slain by the Dragon-Blooded.
Will these living legends herald the return of the Golden Age -
or the end of Creation?
