Ages ago, a spell was cast to create a parallel Earth to remove a dangerous species prophesied to destroy the Earth... humans. Man was given their own world, well out of the way of other races, and the barrier between worlds was sealed by the legendary magical Apple of Discord.
In 1999, the seal was broken and the Apple was removed. Since then, in the quiet town of Apple Valley, Ohio, the world has been coming to an end. Slowly.
