In the darkest moments, miracles can happen. After seven years of art school, learning to be a Bard, Pran is kicked out when a prank goes sideways and ends up breaking a friend's leg. Left to fend for herself, all hope gone, she happens upon a helpless woman being attacked and tries her best to stop it. Breaking a few laws in the process. Now she has a choice, either learn to be an apprentice Guardian until things settle down, or learn to survive on the streets. The decision is easy, since eating is far more pleasant than starvation, or so she assumes. Being a Guardian is a lot more than she bargained for however and with each passing day it became far more obvious that something is very wrong with the world. Because people have started to worship the technologies of the past, and as a Guardian, no matter how new, it's up to her to stop them. Before they destroy the world.

Things aren't exactly as she thought they were however, and now she has to suspect her own friends and comrades of being in on the designs. In the end, her place is assured however.

After finding out that a technological cult from the past wanted to take over the world, Pran did what she could to stop them. At least she thought that was the case. Now things are turning even darker, as she has to infiltrate the highest seat of power, in order to ferret out spies that want her entire world to change. Forever. If she fails, then she may die, true. Things are worse than that however. Because if the wrong side wins, she might not have chosen correctly. Luckily for her, she always backs the winner. You'd think that people might be getting that idea by now, wouldn't you? It doesn't matter if the side on top in the end is from the world she's always known, or from an ancient computer simulation. The only thing that counts, in the end, is what's in it all for her.
