“Gods? Angels? Bah! They are just the totemic-metaforms of a cruxing-statigenic amplifier of massive size! The concept itself is relatively rudimentary involving ether-oscillations between variable pairings within the Seraphic-matrix. Each focal-bond achieves a kind of “zenith point” of reinforcement and the collapses from quasi-reality decay before affecting a dissonance with other recent resonance pairings.

Like the heart of any good story the City of Seven Seraphs is full of major themes. Central to the City is the theme of Duality.
The City rests in the Shadow Plane at the conjunction of a massive Ethereal Vortex, caught between Light and Darkness, and showered by radiant demi-planar energies and proto-matter of the Ethereal Plane. While these pairing forces provide some of the ambient feel and supernatural realities in the City, they are hardly alone. Duality is present in nearly every aspect.
From the Parities’ divisions into those of Light and Dark, to more embedded internal oppositions within them, the Dualities of the City are what drive it. Steamwalkers strive to master the generative conflict of Water and Fire. Descendants of Dream speculate the difference between Illusion and Reality. Meanwhile, Ashborn druids set fires to Destroy and clear the way for new Growth. Within and without the City of Seven Seraphs dances Duality walking the line of balance and collapse.
Kickstarter previews continue tomorrow! But wait it already started…. so why on earth would you be backreading this? Are you that super-excited about this new face coming to the fore to bring back an awesome era of killer planar adventure?
