The quest for the Philosopher's Stone is wrought with madness. Beings without souls mingle in the shadows with unnatural half-man, half-animal beasts. Armies are driven by secret devils. As the Elrics dig into the darkest realms of humanity, one thing is clear... the hunt for the truth behind truths has aged these boys into weary young men. Alphonse wears the weight of the world on his hollow metal shoulders; Scar s actions in Lior change the boy into something impossible to comprehend. Edward dirties his hands to gain an advantage against the Homunculi. The players flutter on wings of desperation, in doomed orbit around the Philosophers Stone.
