    Description:
    The surface isn't safe anymore.
    Over a thousand years after the triumphant return of Princess of Luna, ponykind has abandoned the surface of Equestria. They now live on great floating islands, held aloft by powerful spells cast so long ago that none alive can remember their origin.
    Magic is slipping away from ponykind, with most born completely lacking in cutie marks. There are no alicorns. The pegasi cannot fly, the earth ponies are weak, and the unicorns have no spells. Those Gifted who are lucky enough to be born with marks go on dangerous expeditions into the land below, salvaging magic and materials from the wreckage of the world long past.
    It is on one of these expeditions that six mares are found, long forgotten but miraculously preserved. Though they cannot remember what happened to the world, they still possess the powerful magic of the old times. On the empty horizons of the brave new world, an unknown threat closes in, steadily wiping out entire cities at a time as it advances.
    It's up to the Elements of Harmony to discover what happened to their world, save it from this new threat, and search for some way to bring things back to how they once were.
    It isn't going to be easy.
