From publisher blurb:
Lumbering forth from the metal grain
The gardener rises again
Beckoned from ancient call and grown
Hunger of gods it will drown
Seek not with eyes of the unforeseen
Fore he lies in dreams of the evergreen
A city is on the verge of great and violent change after rumors spread of its automaton ruler and god succumbing to sickness.
As many in Quendazaem plot to seize power, two of the god’s servants are desperate to reactivate their god and bring order and stability back to the city.
They place their hopes in a group of adventurers who must stave off of death and insanity to seek the means of resurrection in the Ninth World.
