From publisher blurb:
Marquis Natan Kaan has spent the past five years believing his wife and infant son lost in a pirate attack on their starliner. However, he’s recently received word that due to quick action on his mother’s part, the boy may yet live. The problem is, his safe haven is a forbidden world under the thumb of strict religious authorities. The heroes are hired to pierce the interdiction and rescue the child, but they soon find that not everything about the planet is as it seems. Around every corner, there is danger, deception, and a deep mystery. Was young Kalan Kaan — now a messianic figure — the world’s only extraplanetary visitor? Will the PCs live long enough to find out?
