Story

Jace, the master of mental magic, was stranded on a deserted island. Without knowing who he was or what he could do, he struggled to remain sane against illusions he mistook for hallucinations. After an inspiring conversation with the illusion of a raven-haired woman, he decided to sail the sea in search of another soul with a raft he’d built. Eventually, a storm cut that plan short and he found himself ashore again. In the morning after the crash, he heard voices coming from the sea. A massive ship approached him. A gorgon came down from it and asked, "What happened to you, Jace?"
