In the solitary City of Middengarth, where fairytales and folklore are history, and magic still lingers in the air, strange things are afoot.
The sinister and eccentric Daemonlords, led by the insane Jester King Paimon, rule the inhabitants with ever-increasing firmness. The great City Clock stands still at one stroke before midnight, and the whispers on the street are that soon the Clock shall strike - to signify an event of world-shaking proportions that none could ever foresee.
In the Outside, the untamed lands far beyond the City, a cruel warlord known only as the Moderator kills or enslaves all those who wish a new society free of the Daemonlords. But one insignificant human is worrying only about his own skin. That is, until Fate decides to lend a hand.
When down-on-his-luck gambler Jeth Sundancer reluctantly teams up again with old partner Renzo K. Castello to perpetrate the 'biggest-ever bank job', the brainchild of the appealing but mysterious Claudia, he soon wishes he had stayed among the anonymous outcasts in Middengarth's City Warrens...
Why are Jeth and his friends being hunted down by the Daemonlords' elite enforcers?
What exactly does this 'biggest ever bank job' entail?
And what the hell does Claudia really have in those suitcases of hers...?
Join this crew of rag-tag outlaws on their surreal adventure of a lifetime through a steampunk fantasy world of cosmic proportions!
