Earth and Eldh always have been linked in some way beyond the understanding of humanity. On Eldh, magic is the commonplace norm while science rules the earth.

Their peaceful time together ends with earth and Eldh moving towards annihilation as a rift in the sky widens; if the opening continues to spread, the multiverse will vanish into nothingness. The Philosophers, who have achieved immortality, drank the blood from the seven sorcerers who left Eldh for earth to sleep for two millennia in peace. They are critical to healing the rift along with Travis and his daughter, but the modern day Philosophers and sorcerers want to stop the outsiders from intruding on their power.
