A young outcast followed by crows finds a flower in the forest one night - it is the Dreamer's Lotus, a powerful hallucinogen that opens the mind to the meanings of the symbols. This can be helpful, especially when you live in a world where everything is symbolic.
The crow is a dangerous sign that is helping Corvus to transform dreams into reality, though everyone knows that manifestation will get you banished. There is an old lunatic named Obiticus who lives in the forest. He wants to manifest a new world, and Corvus is the key to his plan. Obiticus speaks of things that are forbidden - he knows secrets that only the awakened will understand. Corvus is desperate to know the truth, but even enlightenment has its price.
