THE THRONE’s been abusing Nectar for years. It made sense at first- they’d be able to briefly see into the future and protect us from the dangers of an unstable world. The dangers were so great and numerous that nobody thought ahead to how The Throne would become systemically addicted to being in power. By being able to see into the future, they can make small but significant changes to the present, rewriting history at the moment that it happens. We don’t even know how long they’ve been doing this. The Throne has become the sole keeper of the written record, and for generations, nobody’s even been allowed to see it. Nobody’s seen a member of The Throne for years.

BUT THE SPIRITS have noticed. The Throne’s abuse has upset the delicate nectar cycle that the world balances on, and they’ve been violently demented by the new ecology. These new dangers have enabled The Throne to tighten their grip on power as they now argue that future sight is necessary to protect the people from the spirits.

Play as Aisa, the newest Nectarmancer, and holder of the worst and most dangerous job on the planet. You must plant, pollinate and care for the nectargenic plants around the world, extract tithings from the populace in service of The Throne, and balance the needs of a desperate community. Your boss knows that you're disposable, the plants are exotic and lethal and the spirits are even worse. Aisa needs a plan.
