Welcome man and woman
To the carnival of wild
Enter the World of fantasy
The turf of the soothsayers
After declining a proposition that has brought overwhelming regret, our poet leaves everything behind that is familiar - the mundane - to embark on a quest for answers.
Like the troubadour, our protagonist invites us to join them on a rustic, picturesque journey to meet the muse, other poets and more, who leave their footprints on these stories.
These are all travelers who have crossed paths with our seeker, who is far from their homeland, searching for revelations whlie traveling the world alone.
In the end, will they discover if it was wise to have left at all?
