Some text from the email:
Life is not easy in Garrett's town. Here crime and corruption are commonplace, wealthy nobles prey on the poor and each other, and magic and machinery coexist uneasily. Fanatical priests from the Order of the Hammer seek to exact their version of justice in the name of their stern and merciless god, the Master Builder. Primitive Pagans, worshipers of the ancient Trickster god, seek to return the City to primeval chaos with their strange and supernatural mastery over nature. Each the other's sworn enemy.
Once again, Garrett finds himself without allies, standing alone between the City and the forces that would crush it. Will his skills be enough to save the dying City?
