Start Your Quest

Assemble your tribe to receive a clue from the Three Supreme Beings:

“Seek a map from the ancients, forged in starlight, tumbling down through the night, shattered in the fall. Pieces on the wind across the land of the people.

In the ruins of great kingdoms, secret caves, battlefields of the dead, the pieces lay hidden. The map to a doorway of travel through time.

Your mission is to open the door.”
