What happens when an average Joe or a petty criminal becomes a god or a demon? For, whom so ever finds an ancient gemstone in Dave Ryan's Penance - shall be endowed with unlimited mystical power.
In primordial times, twenty-four magical gemstones were scattered throughout the world in an attempt to find worthy bearers of their eldritch power. Each gem is a conduit of the local mythos in which it hides and is a gateway to the realm of the supernatural world.
Both good and evil men have uncovered the gemstones and are in a race for omnipotence over all mankind. With limitless power, and no idea how to use it, will the heroes and villains of Penance open up the very gates of Heaven and Hell?
