Summer of the year 2140, six years after the end of the Age of the Blue Sky and the start of the Monochrome Years.
Our carefree days are lost, but there is still hope for our children. With the recent discovery of the Jester Software, we can make sure that, even with the tragedies and monstrous beings walking our once blue Earth, our progeny can grow strong and happy without our guidance. Their body locked into perpetual states until they are ready to face the next stage of their lives, we have created the Jester as a guide, guardian and tutor for our youth, the digital game covering the world with an heavy gloss of mischief and joy, slowly dissipating the more maturity our dear children accumulate. This software do not only protect their innocence, however, but prepare them for the world, strengthening their bodies and minds and forging their souls in the image of true survivors.

Their time with the Jester ending on their adulthood, they will then be outfitted in the ongoing Hero software and, should they reach full maturity, the still only whispered of Emperor and Empress software.
