Across the street a man stands in his window and stares at me.
The people of Synthmark
Synthmark is a world full of people.
Like you and me they go about their daily lives, minding their own business and dreaming of a better future. Most are common folk, they have dreams and desires, but they also need to live and survive. And for the most part, they are content.
You’ll meet plenty of common folk as we explore the world of Synthmark together. There is nothing overtly special about them, except their ability to get on with life. No fuss, no drama. Just life. And that is a superpower so often overlooked.
Other people you meet will stand out from the common folk. It doesn’t mean they are any more important or special, though a couple will be, but it might be because you relate to them better. For others the events in their life make them rise above the rest, they become a reluctant hero. While others are born with unique talents and abilities. And finally, some stand out because they simply wish to, they thirst for the spotlight and will do almost anything to rise to the top.
You shouldn’t trust me. But you will.
