Legacy of the Sleepers

Submitter: Fabien Lyraud
Description: Far beneath the surface of the world live the Sleepers, giant creatures who sleep since milions years. The Sleepers can interfere in human live's through dreams, which the Sleepers pervert into horrible nightmares. Serving the Sleepers are the most sensitive humans: the Agents. The Agents execute the awful plans of the Sleepers. But there exists hope. A few people have developed psionic abilities and they can fight against the Sleepers' powers and the Agents. They are begining to organise a guild to destroy all the Sleepers. Society has recently emerged from a mediaeval regressive period and into a renaissance. The nations explore the world and discover other civilisations. The Sleepers strikes grow more intense because they want to provoke a gigantic war between all civilisations to exterminate mankind.
