Joined by something which can inflict change on an unimaginable scale, the creatures of the Field must put aside their differences to avoid losing everything.
The world is a field, the parts of the field – the Hedgerow, Copse, Riverbank and more—are countries and the different creatures who call them home are us.
Like us, these creatures become ever more reliant upon one another and, through trial and error, have to learn how to live together, which often involves conquest and bloody fighting.
When ‘the tongues’ are captured during a lightning strike, the creatures are joined by something which can inflict change on a previously unimaginable scale. To prevent losing everything they have known and will ever know, the creatures are forced to consider why they continuously struggle to get along with one another.
