Welcome, Sojourner. Your journey has been long; sit, please, and I will tell you the story of a place once known as Earth.
Once there was a world, filled with air so thick with smoke it would choke you with one breath. Countries spread across this world were at war, constantly looking for power. Eventually this led to use of forbidden technology known as nuclear weaponry. It destroyed our planet completely. That is how we've come to live upon Sospito, in our great city of Asa.
There is much more to that story, however...would you like to help us write it?
