At the District One Invitational, a rookie eSports team defied all odds and reached the finals. Their underdog story and humble beginnings elevated them to worldwide acclaim. Media corporations dubbed them, The Paragons. With their main competition eliminated from the tournament during the semifinals, the rookie team sailed through the live finals and won by a landslide. Their prize was to become the first ever players in the most exclusive VR game yet, Abidden

The Paragons never celebrated that semi-final victory. They lost a friend in that match, who never appeared online again. Ten years later, the gaming landscape has changed and Abidden with it. Helena is the last remaining Paragon. Her team now consists of celebrities, influencers and musicians. Abidden has been reduced to a shadow of its former glory, but is the most streamed and viewed game in the world, despite having only a handful of players.

None of this matters to James Sylvester. Finally out of hospital, things aren't good for James. He's found himself crippled with medical debt, his gaming licence has been revoked and he's permanently lost his place in society. He now spends his days competing in illegal slum arcades to manage the repayments. When a high-profile job comes along, James gets temporary backdoor access to his blacklisted gaming account. After reactivating it for the first time in ten years, James receives an invitation that could change his life forever.

Ralph didn't go through the Portal with his cellmate, David. 

He instead went back to sleep. 

David Rossmore, a criminal accountant with a head for numbers, spent a decade in the magical world of Azen. 

He became Davros the Red... A Legendary Archmage who fought for the Kingdom of Aze in countless wars against their enemies. 

At the peak of his power, Davros sought to bring balance to the world, but that didn't work for the Kingdom. 

So they sent him back through the portal. He's back in his jail cell, but he's in trouble...  

David's body is rapidly losing its magic, and he's close to death. 

This story isn't about David Rossmore, or Davros the Red. 

It's about Ralph.
