LOGAN is an invitation to look at your own life and reflect on all you have been through.

In a world populated by fae-like beings, each of you has promised to use your power to stop the spread of the Shadow Realm, a world of perpetual darkness between this world and home.

You will travel the world, using your memories to find solutions to problems that the Hidden Folk face in the aftermath of the destructive expansion of the Shadow Realm while thinking of potential long-term solutions to stopping the Shadow Realm from bleeding completely into the World of the Hidden Folk
