Stream the Story Of Rinzen: Chapter 1 on SoundCloud:


He awoke to find himself in a different world.

How long had he been wandering?
The Sands of Time were vast, infinite maybe.

What he sought — what we all seek —
was to be unraveled.

There, in the formless night,
Divorced from the past,
He caught a glimpse of the divine.
