Issue #8 – The Miasma Misadventure.

The light distorting, mist-like, atmospheric feature of the Sea of Babiro -the Miasma (Miaz-Ma)- is thought of as the life-giving breath of the ‘Mother of All’ (the Sea itself). Citizens of the City-States that bedeck Her Shores vie for position on the waterfront to enjoy the Miaz-Ma to the fullest. It’s a fine and lovely, ‘miazmical’, day when the Miaz-Ma is at its height.

Imagine their despair when a plume of smog from the back-lots, appearing animated by a sentient consciousness, sets about corrupting the Miaz-Ma of all Denium!!!

“Why’s Ones Assemble!”… The Miasma Misadventure awaits.
