It is a celebration in the city state of Kyteia. It is the Fiftieth anniversary of the fall of their enemy city state Grenin. The celebration ends in a panic stricken riot when a man shows up in the clothes from Grenin. He is promptly arrested and interviewed by Lt. Nathaniel Wilkics from the Kyteian army. The Man, as he is known, has no memory of who he is or where he is from. He begins to tell Wilkics a spiraling tale of waking up cold and naked in the abandoned city state of Grenin and what led to his arrest in Kyteia. The story of the ghosts of memory, dragons, a Witch Queen and her undead servants, a forest stuck in the season of fall and the creatures who dwell there.
