Hitherby Dragons is a story about the emptiness.
If you look out at the world, there’s a lot that you know. There’s a lot that you understand. But at the edge of your map, there’s emptiness.
There’s questions that are hard to answer.
There’s things that are hard to explain.
There’s choices that don’t make sense and there’s a sea of chaos and there’s emptiness.
So Jane goes to the edge of the world, where Santa Ynez touches on the chaos. She walks across the bridge to the abandoned tower of the gibbelins. Finding that its machinery is in recoverable order, she assembles a theater company of gods and humans to answer suffering.
Also they put on shows.
