“I told you this is a place of dreams. Sometimes, there are nightmares.”
The world of Nevermor:
Nevermor is a secret land at the edge of the universe, beyond the sea of dreams. Here, time is frozen in place because of a vow made by the Never-Ones – a group of boys who have promised not to grow older. The hidden plane can be reached through either the endless sky or the endless ocean. It is said that the land was born from a boy’s dream when he wished for escape. Very few ever find their way to Nevermor. It is the place where dreams go, and it is spread with many fantastic things to fill the eyes with wonder – but that does not mean it is completely safe. Sometimes, monstrous nightmares seep in.
Nevermor is separated from our world by a rift in time and space – such as heaven and hell are. There is only one who is able to cross over at will, and he is known as the Rifter. The land is affected by his moods and it responds to his presence. He is the guardian of it, and he has been there for longer than he can remember.
The inhabitants of Nevermor are not always friendly with one another, but all are aware of an ages-old conflict which affects the state of the land and everything in it. Much like every other realm, there is still war here. On one side is the Rifter himself, and on the other is the Scourge, the most feared and wicked man to have ever set his boot on the island. No one quite knows how he came to be in Nevermor, but there has not ceased to be dread and turmoil since he arrived.
The Rifter and the Scourge are hell-bent on killing each other, and sometimes, nothing else seems to matter. Chaos and madness ensue when they are locked in battle, but they cannot be bothered by it.
Perhaps the only thing that can turn the tide in their never-ending struggle is one that no one would have expected – the appearance of a girl from the outside…
