Explore the twelve oceans of Gaia a faraway planet filled with mythical castles and creatures. The Book of Omni starts hundreds of years in the past during the Arcadian Revolution. Arcadia is a prosperous melting pot of cultures and merchants from all over Gaia. During this time, a Northern Tribe conquered Arcadia and many live in poverty including Omni and her father, a blacksmith.
Unlike the women of her time, Omni is a free-thinking, open-minded and pants-wearing girl who desires to explore the sea when she grows older. From rags to riches to seafarer, this tale journeys through the life of Omni, a girl with extraordinary powers. And she acquires these powers in the most extraordinary way.
Most Gaians, just as any human, only die once at the end of life. However, Omni isn’t like most Gaians. Each time she passes through the cycle from death to life she acquires ability over the object of her demise. By overcoming death a countless number of times, she becomes a vessel for the One and a mighty warrior against the invaders and the forces of evil.
