The Engine Stirs...
A switch is flicked; a lever pulled.
Who dares disturb its slumber?
Grinding gears creak forward; primordial pistons pump once again.
Who seeks to defend its secrets?
Steam hisses through ancient pipes as long-forgotten Nodes rumble back to life. Questing Factions unearth arcane knowledge, twisting it to their own ends.
The Engine stirs...Who is brave enough to challenge its power?
The Engine is the hidden source of steampunk power permeating the world Twisted. But it is more than just a god-like machine: it has a selfish consciousness seeking to transform the world according to its own designs, and a jealous ego unwilling to share this power!
Rumours of the Engine’s influence are spreading throughout the world of Twisted, and competing Factions have emerged seeking to discover the secret access points to the Engine’s power: the Nodes.

Now more and more Factions are forming throughout the world of Twisted as the power of long-lost Engine Nodes begins to re-awaken. Rumours abound of an uneasy alliance of disparate characters known as the Guild of Harmony. Tongues are wagging in London, speaking of a mysterious nexus of power that has been uncovered somewhere in Egypt. And an ancient power lurks beneath the Atlantic, preparing to emerge and join the fray...
