Gravia is a world ruined by centuries of pollution caused by booming industrialism in the area; every which way you turn, filth and hazardous waste lies. When a cleaner source of energy, magic, seems like an option, some dark and villainous figures intervene to keep their precious industry in tact (sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it?).

For the cooking enthusiast who is tired of traditional coolers, a highly funded Kickstarter campaign may have the answer.
