It is the late 26th century. Earth is recovering from a catastrophic explosion that exterminated the majority of the population centuries ago. The surviving humans organized along four radically different ideologies, called Paths, to rebuild the world as they see fit: Harmony, Dominance, Progress, and Salvation.
