Caldera: a town that wants to be a city, deep in the baking heart of the Nevada desert. Protected for generations by a clan of sword-slingers called the Kusagari, Caldera has a long history of secrets hidden behind its walls.

You are one of this clan, a Kusagari, a young defender returning from a five-year banishment. You have returned to find your home in flames – Jackals, a motorcycle gang of thugs and scavengers, have moved in overnight. But something larger than looting is at stake here. Where are the rest of the Kusagari?

Who is behind this?

You must find out – and get your sword back. It was given to you for safekeeping (by your father) when you were banished, and you haven’t lugged it around for five years just to lose it now.
